Capcom recently announced February 19th–mid May, 15 titles will be released for PSN and XBLA. These retro game titles (1984-1988) are going to be available individually, through bundles, or as a complete collection. As a reward for those who purchase all 15 titles, two bonus games will be available for free!
As soon as one or more of the Capcom Arcade Cabinet’s titles are purchased, the platform is unlocked, which provides cool features like the sweet cheat DIP switch, a music player for custom sounds, and it will also give players the ability to save screenshots and share with friends.
Check out the preview trailer here:
The DIP switch will let players tone down difficulties for those who can’t survive the hardest games. Some of the games will also allow 2-player online modes, which includes the leaderboards. What may be the coolest feature is the ability to play different versions of some games: international or Japanese.
XBLA players will get to upload screenshots directly to Facebook. It seems this time the PS3 has a cooler feature. While the 360 version lets players take some neat pics, the PSN version lets players download the gameplay footage straight to YouTube.
All titles will be available for individual purchase (except 1943: The Battle of Midway on XBLA), which will be available upon the release of each bundle. The All-in-one Pack will be priced at $29.99 (PSN) and 2000MSP (XBLA).
