For old-school fans and arcade novices alike, Capcom Arcade Stadium allows players to bring home the electrifying thrill of an arcade with 32 action-packed classics.

Capcom Arcade Stadium will allow players to bring home the electrifying thrill of an arcade with 32 action-packed classics, which includes a free download of 1943 - The Battle of Midway - and the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins as a stand-alone add-on.

Retro fans can then choose to purchase up to three different arcade packs that highlight a different era of Capcom arcade goodness, from ‘80s classics like Bionic Commando and Strider to ‘90s favorites like Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Players can also purchase the all-in pack containing all three packs of 10 games in addition to the Ghosts ‘n Goblins stand-alone add-on for maximum retro nostalgia. This must-have collection will include (up to four-player) local multiplayer for the games that support it.

Additionally, each title comes with a variety of options that can be adjusted such as Game Speed, Difficulty Level, Display Settings, Display Filters and various frames including a variety of 3D-rendered arcade cabinets.

Each game also comes with a Rewind feature, allowing players to jump back in time to save themselves (or a friend) from any unforeseen dangers.

Capcom unveiled new content for the release of Capcom Arcade Stadium on PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam), including a new “Invincibility” mode that allows retro fans to wield the power of immortality across their favorite games in the collection.

With this new mode, players can survive devastating hits and seemingly deadly obstacles to avoid the dreaded “Game Over” screen. Additionally, Capcom Arcade Stadium is also offering “Display Frames Set 1,” which gives players access to 32 title-specific display frames that unlock new customization options for their digital arcade cabinets.

Available for all platforms, the “Invincibility” mode will be available on May 25 for MSRP $0.99 and the “Display Frames Set 1” can be purchased for MSRP $0.99.

Capcom Arcade Stadium is available to pre-order today on Xbox One and Steam and early purchasers will receive the newly announced “Display Frames Set 1” for free up until June 8. Additionally, the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins add-on game for Capcom Arcade Stadium on Nintendo Switch will be on sale for 50% off for a limited time between April 26 and May 15.

On Steam, a “Mini-Album” will also be released featuring Capcom Arcade Stadium theme songs “A Brand New Day” and “Teenage Blues.” Fans can purchase individual tracks for MSRP $1.49 each or acquire the full 10-track album for MSRP $9.99. A bundle featuring all three Capcom Arcade Stadium game packs and the Mini-Album is available for MSRP $47.99.

Capcom announced Capcom Arcade Stadium will expand to include more arcade classics in the future. More information regarding these titles and timing will be revealed at a later date.
