Capcom is releasing a bunch of its old arcade titles on Xbox Live over the coming weeks and months, to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
Made available via an app called Capcom Arcade Cabinet, 15 titles from 1984 to 1988 will be made available from the company’s back catalogue, either individually, in packs, or as a full set. Those that purchase all of the games will receive two free mystery titles.
“Downloading an individual title or pack will also give access to the Capcom Arcade Cabinet ‘platform’ which provides additional features including DIP switch functionality, a music player, and the ability to capture and share screenshots or video,” said Capcom.
“When playing in standard mode, players will be able to access DIP switch-like settings to adjust their number of lives and difficulty, including a Casual Mode which tones down the difficulty level and makes it more attainable to see the end credits.
“Further features include 2 player online play for certain titles; a global leaderboard; a training mode with infinite lives to hone your strategy and an option to select either the Japanese or international versions of the individual titles.”
Oh and yeah, achievements.
