Classic Capcom games Tower of Doom and Shadow Over Mystara reportedly headed to Xbox 360 and PS3.
Released in the early 1990s, Tower of Doom and Shadow Over Mystara are side-scrolling beat-em-up games with role-playing elements. This would be the first time the two games have seen release since 1999's Dungeons & Dragons Collection for the Sega Saturn.
No price for either game was announced and a Capcom representative declined to comment.
Capcom previously announced that it will reveal two new games during its World of Capcom panel presentation during PAX East next week. GameSpot will be in attendance.
that's one...all I ask is for Darkstalkers 4 (multi-platform), Capcom VS SNK 2 E.O. HD Edition (Wii U), Capcom VS SNK 2 HD Edition (360/PS3), but mostly give me Darkstalkers 4!
It's about time Capcom got smart and released these. I played Tower of Doom everytime I went to Six Flags. It was the only place to play it. Now if they can just make it possible to do the same thing with their Alien Vs. Predator beat'em up.
Capcom are crazy if they think im gonna pay for any of these "classic" arcade games as i must have spent a small fortune on them in the arcades. Ill just wait another month for my Ouya and then move the Mame Emulator and roms over to it
Fun games, but an average gamer will beat them in 2 hours (like I did). They should not cost for than 5 dollars each.
I would gladly buy some old SNK beat'em up also on XBLA or PSN. Sengoku trilogy is awsome, and maybe I'd get Robo Army, Ninja Combat and even Burning Fight.
Are they coming to Capcom Arcade Cabinet?
I have the Saturn version, but I'll get these ones for the achievements, of course.
@0m39AX the best achievements in games are the ones that can't be recongnized by the game.Like performing a dramatic drift on a last turn in Gran Tursimo of Forza Motorsport and passing an opponent or Having a blown in engine in OverG Fighters still able to dodge missles and make it back to the runway and still complete the mission.chances are on the games you played you did stuff that was way better than any achievement or trophy could ever reward
@0m39AX Only 8-bit arcade games are to be found in the Arcade Cabinet and they already revealed the complete list of games(no D&D there).
I must have spent at least over $100 playing the crap out of these games. I'm glad they're on the store now. If you guys haven't gotten the chance to play them on the arcade or emulator, these are real gems of the gaming industry.
I used to play Shadow Over Mystara to death in the old arcade. Sad day when they took that machine away...
Now I've gotten an emulator just for these two games! True beat'em up gems!
I'm less inclined to throw my money into the PS Store, since they said that purchases you make this gen won't carry over.
Love these games. Just FYI for all you stupid people that you could have gotten these or ANY other arcade game ever made through an emulator.
It's legal, free, and you can get them right from google
niiiiiiice. I remember playing one of these games in the arcade every now and then; it being pretty awesome. Can't wait.
@GamerOuTLaWz I would bet money that it does. It was one of the things the original games were built around.
AWWW YEAHHHHH!!! Total nostalgia mode engaged.
Mystara was my favorite D&D game world, it was beyond awesome that it had the best arcade games.
@vengefulwilberg Absolutely right! I have that game running on mame, but I also bought an arcade stick for my ps3... AVP and the D&D games with an arcade stick will play like heaven.
OH MY GOD, finally I have a valid reason to use capitals. These games are phenomenal. I play them through Mame but it will be better to have them on a console.
Loved the cleric`s Sticks to Snakes spell. Never understood why this spell isnt avaliable on all others Dungeons and Dragons games.
*********************************** YES! I was so disappointing when when I heard what was in that arcade compilation they had coming out, this is what I most wanted to see. Shouldn't have imported that $100 Saturn port of the two games last year, oh well.
Sounds good. But next gen is less than a year away. What happens to your DLC games when you cross over? I heard Wii-U shafted gamers on Wii Downloads.
@Vambran You heard wrong, I have all of my Wii downloads on the Wii U.
Its only 29 comments but still...so good to see that PS3 and X360-gamers are on the same wavelenght for a change :)
