• Capcom has revealed that the first titles for the Capcom Arcade Cabinet are now available.  These titles include 1943: The Battle of Midway, Avengers and Black Tiger which are now available on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.  This first pack is available to purchase from today on the North American PlayStation Store and tomorrow on the European PlayStation Store and in both territories on XBLA at a price of $4.99/€4.99/£3.99/400MSP.

    Each of the game packs from Capcom Arcade Cabinet works with the Capcom Arcade ‘platform.’ Players start their trip down memory lane with Black Tiger, which is available to download for FREE. Downloading Black Tiger will also give access to the Capcom Arcade platform which provides additional features including DIP switch functionality, a music player, and the ability to capture and share screenshots or video. Thereafter, packs of titles can be purchased and then become available to play through the platform.

    In 1943: The Battle of Midway players pilot a P-38 Lightning over the Pacific Ocean and take on waves of enemy fighters, bombers and aircraft carriers in this vertical scrolling shooter.

    It is time to get tough on the streets of Paradise City and as players work to rescue six girls from the clutches of gangland boss Geshita and his henchmen in the vertical scrolling beat ‘em up Avengers. Black Tiger heads to a fantasy realm where a bold barbarian encounters all manner of creatures and enemies in classic side scrolling and platforming action.
