Posted by on February 7th, 2013 | 4 Comments | Tags:

Today Capcom has announced the release schedule of all of the games coming to its Capcom Arcade Cabinet.

If you don’t know about Capcom Arcade Cabinet, is a platform in which many of the classic 80s 8bit games that Capcom is known for can be purchased either à la carte or in packages. The versions you buy won’t just be 8bit rom dumps, but include features like network play for some games, Youtube video uploading, leaderboards and of course trophies. Also there is full access to each arcade machine, so you can change virtual DIP switches to add more lives or even turn on a Casual Difficulty mode.

    Meh. I got everyone of those games from their PSP compilations. I’ll pass.

    First the model is horrible. You pay more for the individual packs then at the end, they make a “buy all at once”. and 10 bucks a pack? Too much.

    And all there packs are 80s games. What about 90’s games? I know that the D&D series and Rival Schools:UBF and Project Justice are out. But Capcom put out some killer games in the 90s.

    And Capcom and SNK Playmore should consider re-releasing Capcom Vs. SNK games.

      One word can explain it…

      “Capcom”.

    Lame. These are all available on PSP. They should release AVP and D&D.
