Earlier this year, the Nintendo Switch received the nifty Capcom Arcade Stadium. A compilation of arcade classics, the collection contains 32 titles released between 1984 and 2001. However, Capcom has more than 32 games in its arcade history. This is why the company has just announced more hits will be coming to Capcom Arcade Stadium.
I’ll wait for the inevitable Capcom Arcade Stadium: Complete Edition
According to an official press release from Capcom, Capcom Arcade Stadium “will expand to include more arcade classics in the future.” While not much to go on, the corporation at least promised concrete details “at a later date.”
In addition to the expansion news, new modes are being implemented as DLC. There will be an “Invincibility” mode that grants players eternal life in the game they boot up. In addition, a “Display Frames Set 1” supplement will unlock new customization options for the digital arcade cabinets. These extras will be part of Capcom Arcade Stadium‘s launch on other consoles, though it’s safe to assume they will hit the Switch version, as well. They will cost $0.99 each, which is highway robbery, considering they should be completely free of charge.
Capcom is having a sale on the Ghosts ‘n Goblins add-on on Switch at this time, too. The title is 50% from now until May 15. For those away from eShop access, that’s $0.99, down from $1.99. Not bad for a classic that delights in killing you 50 times on the first level.
Enthusiasts, are you excited to see more games hit Capcom Arcade Stadium? What are you hoping to see added? Personally, I’m ready for some Darkstalkers and Mega Man: The Power Battle!
