This is great, I LOVE these games. I played the first game at Six Flags, which was the only place I knew of that to play it. When MAME finally came out I was pleasantly suprised that there was a SEQUEL! Now I can play these whenever I want on my HDTV. Hell yes.
Publisher officially announces '90s arcade games Tower of Doom and Shadow Over Mystara coming to XBLA, PC, Wii U, and PSN this summer for $15.
BOSTON--Today during the "World of Capcom" panel at PAX East, Capcom confirmed that its '90s arcade Dungeons & Dragons titles Tower of Doom and Shadow Over Mystara will launch on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, PC, and Wii U this summer as part of the $15 Chronicles of Mystara collection.
This was rumored last week.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara will support four-player drop-in, drop-out gameplay, as well as high-definition graphics and "unique combat and spells." In addition, players will be able to customize rule sets and unlock a series of extras. These were not named.
Wii U gamers will be able to use the GamePad controller to scroll through items, among other uses.
Yesssss!!! No longer do I need to play alone on an emulator. I hope there is online multiplayer support!
Sold! without any hd support, I wonder will there be any online? that would be great with the other options and features mentioned... thanks for the news capcom!
I gess you cant play on HD graphics I1d like to see this game REMAKE like they did with Super Street Fighter HD... if they put real HD remastered OK! better than filters avaliable on emulators, but the original resolution of this game is about 640x480 if they filter it upscaling it will be the same as some filters we use on emulators which are not legal... but free...Online Multiplayer would be far superior than Kalliera servers and been on consoles mean you can sit on you coach and play whenever you want...
I remember playing this when I was on vacation in Florida at an arcade over 15 years ago! Just tell me when to give you my money for this AwEsOmeNeSs-In-A-cAn! RETRO RULES! RETRO RULES!
I'm definitely in... Hopefully they have some kind of "Quick Match" MP game finder (like Gears, Halo BF, etc.)
Very cool. I've been wanting this for awhile since I never did finish these games at the arcade many, many years ago. Only thing we need now is a launch date and that might not come until the E3.
Mmm, here I'm seeing the consequences of that survey Capcom made some months ago. Glad I took it, these games are awesome!
Shadow Over Mystara is seriously awesome, from fluid, fast gameplay to mesmerizing, "they-don't-make-them-like-these-anymore" soundtrack. Even the name entry music is amazing. It'll be gorgeous in HD. I have it on a CPS2 emulator for the PSP and I will definitely get this in the future.
@theperm lol Still a good call, especially on the Castlevania 3 part. Definitely my favorite of the NES trilogy. I still play it on an emulator from time to time.
"Wii U gamers will be able to use the GamePad controller to scroll through items, among other uses. "
Wow, really a game changer that GamePad.
@redskinStu "Wii U gamers will be able to use the GamePad controller as an additional touch feature in which you can slide digital coins into the "slot machine" for extra lives." Well... was trying to make it sound dumb, but after reading it, it's even better than just scrolling through items, lol!
everyone repeat after me: EMULATOR.
you can play multi-player, you can enhance the graphics, you can go into the settings and "customize rulesets" and runs perfectly by the way.
@danusty Some people don't like emulators?
Was this the original arcade rpg that existed? I never enjoyed rpg's until later in life so I skipped this game entirely for fighting games back then. I hope it's good! ^_^
This summer so far is going to be AMAZING for DL games. The new TMNT game looks awesome. D and D is finally getting a good console port, and of course........mother@%#$ing DUCKTALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO-OO!
So the year of 2013 is the year of retro?! First Duck Tales and now Dungeons & Dragons! Capcom you are slowly making up for Resident Evil 6, this is superb!!
@uklegendkiller Or the year of Capcom... really the same thing.
@ExtremePhobiathey just need to do Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers and then my life will be complete!!
@theperm I think you should have said: "in my opinion 2nd... best... game... ever... next to Duck Tales." otherwise I think that's quite an exaggeration
