Capcom Arcade Stadium Launches Today on Nintendo Switch; Local Co-Op Announced for Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection

During today’s Nintendo Direct, Capcom revealed that all 32 arcade classics included in Capcom Arcade Stadium are now available for digital download from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch. The electrifying thrill of an arcade comes to Nintendo Switch with Capcom Arcade Stadium, which offers three different packs of 10 games that each highlight a different era of Capcom arcade goodness. The collection also includes the free-to-download 1943 – The Battle of Midway – and the separate add-on title, Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Retro fans can select specific packs or purchase an all-in-one option containing the 32 games together.
The three individual packs in Capcom Arcade Stadium are available for MSRP $14.99 each, and offer access to ‘80s classics like BIONIC COMMANDO and STRIDER, or ‘90s favorites like SUPER STREET FIGHTER II TURBO. The Ghosts ‘n Goblins add-on game will be available for MSRP $1.99. Players can also opt for the all-in pack containing all 32 games, including all three packs of 10, the free 1943 – The Battle of Midway –, and the add-on Ghosts ‘n Goblins, for MSRP $39.99. In addition to releasing on Nintendo Switch, Capcom Arcade Stadium will also be coming to the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and Steam. More information regarding these platforms will be revealed at a later date.
To celebrate the resurrection of the legendary Capcom series, the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins will be available for free as an add-on game for Capcom Arcade Stadium prior to the February 25 release of Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection. After that release, the Ghosts ‘n Goblins add-on game will be available for individual purchase or as part of the all-in Capcom Arcade Stadium pack.
Also revealed during the Nintendo Direct, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection will introduce local co-op to the Ghosts ‘n Goblins universe for the first time ever. Friends and family members can now join forces with Arthur on his quest to overcome evil as one of three supporting characters: Barry, who creates barriers for protection; Kerry, who carries Arthur through danger; and Archie, who creates bridges to cross.

Additionally, the Capcom USA Twitch channel will be hosting a stream marathon from 10:00am – 10:00pm PT on February 18 and 19 to celebrate the release of Capcom Arcade Stadium. The full schedule of games and streamers will be announced on the Capcom USA social channels.
