DuckTales isn’t the only old title Capcom is dusting off and reselling this summer. The publisher has also announced Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara.

A compilation of 2D, side-scrolling fighters from the 90s, Chronicles of Mystara brings Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara and Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom together with HD graphics and a bunch of new features.

The games come with GGPO netcode and four player online support, as well as drop-in/drop-out co-op and a new House Rules feature allowing players to customise gameplay. 

There’s a Character Visualizer too, which lets players track which characters are used most often to help create a more balanced multiplayer party, or point out which characters are most under-used.

Beyond that there’s a Challenge system that sets players goals in return for level-ups and coins which can be spent on unlockables and gameplay loot.

Due out on XBLA this summer, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara will cost 1200 MSP. The announcement trailer and a selection of screens are below.

Does the screen bounce about like that when you're playing?

Figures they drop it around the time Dragon's Crown is suppose to drop, to put Gamers in a bind.

Good for Capcom, they are doing good things for once.

After this good news lets hope that they announce a new Megaman game? I'd even be happy with a Megaman X compilation.

Weird to think there were D&D games I actually missed back in the 90s.

It looks like a Golden Axe style game with some minor rpg elements, would that be about right?

#9 yes, that's about right.

Love these 2D brawlers.

Is there a new unwritten rule where any video of an old school refurbished game is uploaded in terrible quality?
