Following the recent announcement of Capcom Arcade Cabinet it’s now time to lift the lid and reveal the full list of classic 8-bit titles and how gamers will be able to transform their PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 into their very own customisable, high-definition (HD) 80s arcade. Beginning next week, a total of fifteen titles from 1984-1988 will be released on a staggered schedule available to purchase digitally either as a series of packs or individually, allowing players to choose what they want to buy.
Downloading an individual title or pack will give players 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. 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 two-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.
In order to share their experiences with friends, PlayStation 3 users will be able to capture video of gameplay to post on YouTube, while Xbox 360 users will be able to upload screenshots to Facebook. Further additions include a sound gallery that allows players to listen to the background music of any of the videogames in their cabinet, and an art gallery which fills with new pieces as player’s progress through the videogames.
The Capcom Arcade Cabinet is set to launch on 19th February 2013, simultaneously on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A trailer for the Capcom Arcade Cabinet follows below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on this new software.
