Capcom Arcade Cabinet: Auntie MAME’ers Won’t Be Happy, But Everyone Else Will (Maybe)…


Capcom Arcade Cabinet KAYeah, yeah – if you use the hugely popular (and according to some, not so legal) arcade emulator, you already “own” these games in their original formats, but Capcom is wagging its finger at you (well, just lightly).  Capcom Arcade Cabinet is on the way, adding HD visuals, modern multiplayer functionality and a load of other stuff to these 15+ classics and making them available as three-game sets or one big bulk download pack over PSN and XBLA starting February 19, 2013. Of course, thanks to licensing rights and other hassles beyond their current control, we STILL don’t get an updated version of the stellar Dungeons & Dragons arcade game (boo!) that NEEDS to get re-issued somewhere at some point on something (grrrr!). Oh well, those Capcom fanatics who aren’t eternally pissy whiners about everything the company does these days (why don’t they just find another publisher to stalk if they’re so displeased?) will be happy with what’s here or on the way.

Anyway, games and pricing are below the jump. Get the whole pack, save some money and get a few free games in the process, I say…

  1. This looks really good! The games are good and it sounds like they’ve taken sometime to make them look good on HD displays. Adding co-op is also really great. I might end up buying the full package. Wouldn’t it be great if they released this set in a real physical cabinet?! I’d find the room for it 🙂


    • Oh, it would have to be a REALLY small run made of those, as there are MAME cabinets you can buy with hundreds of classic arcade games installed. I’d love to see some sort of ultimate edition made with ALL Capcom’s arcade games put out on a few discs or even a portable drive for PC users. Still, I’m sure some super-fan will take that lovely key art and use it to make up a cool cocktail table version or something…
