Capcom Arcade Cabinet Heading West
Written By
View author's profile

Capcom has revealed that as well as coming to Japan, the Capcom Arcade Cabinet: Retro Games Collection will also be heading to the Xbox Live Arcade in western territories. Capcom Arcade Cabinet looks to be an app that's a bit like XBLA's Game Room, in which you can download a bunch of old-skool titles.

"So it looks as if the CAC's out of the bag, and the world's officially onto our plans to unleash a number of cherished 8-bit arcade games as part as Capcom's 30th Anniversary," Capcom USA revealed. "The Capcom Arcade Cabinet will feature numerous classic Capcom games as digital downloads for PS3 and 360, and it is definitely coming to western territories."

So, what classic Capcom games can we expect to see on the Capcom Arcade Cabinet? "We're holding the CAC cards close to our chest for now, but we'll be releasing full details regarding dates, pricing, specific titles, and everything else on February 7th so stay tuned," Capcom added. Bah.

We've got the achievements right here, and there's two teaser images below, indicating that 1987's Black Tiger will be the first title to hit the Capcom Arcade Cabinet. Take a little look see.

@3
As much as I would love an Xbox remake of BoF 1 and 2, they were neither arcade games or from the 8 bit era, so I would highly doubt this collection would include anything from that series.

Yaaay, loved this game, it was called Black Dragon in some regions btw.

Pumped sooooo much money into this as a kid, got the pcb bug a few years ago and picked up the arcade board for more money than I should have...

Still getting this as soon as the put it out there :D

Chances are these are going to be the games off of Capcom Generations that got released on the PS2 a few years back. I heard a rumour that the games on this were originally supposed to come out on Games Room but when that tanked Capcom went back to the drawing board.

Im really hoping this isn't another Games Room were you have to pay for each games.

Apparently some people have a hard time figuring out what an Arcade game is. Half of the titles people mention have never been in the arcades.

And if you really can't wait for Capcom's library of classic games, then there are 2 compilatins out for the PS2/Xbox, if you own one of those.

And people who ask for the old RE titles...it isn't that hard to buy a PS1 and the 3 games, is it? It's not going to be that expensive. I even think they are on the PSN on PS3.

@30, That's completely besides the point, we have been given HD remakes of CV:X and Resident Evil 4, and we would like to have the same thing for the Xbox 360.. Capcom themselves have even hinted at remaking the 2nd for the Xbox, they didn't say 'Just buy a PS1' did they?

@32 I know right, they need to port them. Also I have it on psp, originally had the ps1 before I sold it years back.

@30 why on earth would I want a ps3 when I have a 360? Did some people start handing tons of money? Buying a game isn't the same as buying a new console.

@33 I didn't say anything about buying a new console. Lots of people have both a PS3 and 360, and I just mentioned it as an option. And besides, a PS3 is not that expensive anymore, but of course it would be cheaper to just buy the games as downloads or on a collection if Capcom decides to go that way, like they did with DMC.

@34 see that's not cheap yet: ps3£229.00
Also it's not like games where they can cost from around £5 to £40 except the rare £50 which I refuse to pay.lol Plus I'd rather they just port it.

@ #35: Then it's a good thing that no one is making you buy it, isn't it?

OT: I really wanted to play Resident Evil 1, 2, 3, and Dino Crisis 1 (why does no one seem to remember this great game?) as well. Therefore, I got them on PSN.

For a long time I've had a feeling that the is some sort of exclusivity deal going on there for those games, and it saves me from bitching about them every single time a member of this site's staff posts something about Capcom putting something on XBLA.

Anyway, really about on topic here, I'm curious about the other titles that will be included. If it's a success, perhaps other companies like Konami could start releasing their backlog of great games. That would be great!

I already have PSP Capcom Classic Collection Remixed, CCC Reloaded, Power Stone Collection & Capcom Puzzle World (Puzzle Fighter being 99.998% of my reason for buying that one) sitting on my PSVita memory card. What is Capcom Arcade Cabinet going to bring to the table?

I have a feeling that the licensed Capcom stuff (e.g. The Punisher, Willow, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Area 88/U.N Squadron) won't be getting a look in.

From the achievement list, the first 3 games will probably be Black Tiger, Avengers and 1943.

From the cover, I'm quite certain that we'll be getting these awesome classics as well:

Gun.smoke
Ghosts'n Goblins
Exed Exes (Killer Bees)
Commando
