Capcom Arcade Stadium

If you’ve been interested in Capcom Arcade Stadium but have yet to get invested in the release, you’ll be happy to hear that the games have now been made available for individual purchase.

Prior to today, the full set of titles were only available in bundles. Capcom released Pack 1: Dawn of the Arcade (’84 to ’88), Pack 2: Arcade Revolution (’89 to ’92), and Pack 3: Arcade Evolution (’92 to’ 01). Each one is priced at $1.99, though Ghosts ‘n Goblins is currently $0.99. Also remember that 1943 -The Battle of Midway is available for free.

As a recap, here’s the full list of individual games in Capcom Arcade Stadium:

Back in February, Capcom Arcade Stadium released on Switch. Fans can experience 32 classic titles from Capcom’s history starting in 1984, going all the way through 2001.

Netorabo spoke about the Switch release in greater detail with its developers, including producer Michiteru Okabe and director Takashi Matsuda. The site first asked about how the project actually came to be in the first place.

Our translation is below:

There’s more planned for Capcom Arcade Stadium. Capcom teased today that the Switch release “will expand to include more arcade classics in the future.” Additional details will be shared “at a later date.”

A couple of new elements were also announced today, though we’re trying to clarify if they’ll be made available in the Switch version. Capcom is planning an “Invincibility” mode in which players can survive devastating hits and seemingly deadly obstacles to avoid the “Game Over” screen. Also in the works is the “Display Frames Set 1” DLC that includes 32 title-specific display frames to unlock new customization options for the digital arcade cabinets. Assuming it’s coming to Switch, pricing is set at $0.99 each for the “Invincibility” mode and “Display Frames Set 1”.

Also worth noting is that the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins add-on for Capcom Arcade Stadium just went on sale. It can be had for 50 percent off until May 15.
