The classic retro games we used to play with such enthusiasm back in the day are the ones that we suddenly and irresistibly want to play.
A decade ago, it was impossible to play retro games without a game console and game software, but recently there are more and more ways to play them, such as unlimited play services, official download sales, and the release of small game consoles.
Nevertheless, the sheer volume of games that have been released to date means that not all of them are available for play.
In the midst of all this, " Capcom Arcade Stadium," which will be released on Nintendo Switch in February 2021, will allow users to play game titles that Capcom has released in arcades on the latest consoles, and it is proving to be extremely popular.
The lineup of nostalgic titles has left gamers who do not own a Nintendo Switch with nothing but envy, but on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the title will also be available on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam!
The console is free! Additional titles in game packs!

All of the packs are greats, but personally, I'm very happy with Pack 3, " Cyberbots - FULLMETAL MADNESS - "!
It makes me itchy to remember the black history of playing "Warlock" with a backstage trick, and getting all smug with the kids in the countryside!
Each pack is priced at 1,500 yen (including tax ) for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One , and1,520 yen (including tax) for Steam, but the 3-pack set is priced at 4,000 yen (including tax) for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One , and4,080 yen (including tax ) for Steam. ), which is a very reasonable price.
The arcade version costs 100 yen per play, so even if you buy the 3-pack set, you'll get your money's worth in 40 plays!
Only the Steam version includes the theme song " A Brand New Day " and 10 other songs, which are available for 150 yen (including tax) for the standalone version and1,000 yen (includingtax ) for the 10-song mini-album set. Steam users can also enjoy the classic songs together.
Steam users can also enjoy the classic songs together!
PS Plus subscribers get Makai Mura for free for a limited time!
Apart from the aforementioned game packs, "Makai Mura," a masterpiece of action games with a devilishly difficult difficulty level, is also available as a standalone title.
The regular price is 200 yen (including tax ), but to commemorate the release, a limited-time campaign will be held to offer "Makai-mura" at a discount!

The Xbox One and Steam versions are also 50% off at 100 yen (tax included ), which is the price of one arcade game, so there's no reason not to buy it!
The game's difficulty level is so high that it's quite difficult to complete, but "Capcom Arcade Stadium" has a rewind function!
It may be a bit unfair, but you can't say that about "Makai Mura"!

Additional DLC "Invincible Play" and "Display Frame" are now available!
In addition to "Makai Mura," there are many other retro games available at "Capcom Arcade Stadium" that have a high level of difficulty.
Unlike the arcade games you used to play at the arcade with coins in your pocket, you can play as many games as you want at "Capcom Arcade Stadium", and it is easy to think that anyone can clear the games by using the rewind function.
For those who just can't get through the game, an additional DLC called "Invincible Play " is now available!

Invincible Play" is now on sale for 100 yen (tax included)!
However, please note that clearing the game with "Invincible Play" does not count as an achievement in the game.
As a side note, back in those days, most arcade cabinets had a 4:3 screen ratio.
However, most home monitors today have a 16:9 ratio, so the "Capcom Arcade Stadium," which is a recreation of an arcade machine, has a blank screen.
The default arcade design is a arcade cabinet, but to further enhance the atmosphere, " Display Frame 1 " is now available as an additional DLC!
The set includes "game-specific wallpaper" for all titles and allows you to set your favorite game designs in the off-screen margins!
If it is too much trouble to set up the wallpaper for each title, there is a button in the "Display Settings" that allows you to change the wallpaper for all games at once, making it easy.
Change the design and play classic games with a fresh new look!
Display Frame Set 1" is available for 100 yen (tax included)!

If you're still wondering which pack to buy, why don't you download "Capcom Arcade Stadium" first and play the free titles while you think about it?
