Final Fight and 1943 Added To Capcom Arcade

By , on April 5, 2011

Nostalgia in and of itself is no bad thing, particularly if it reunites us with a long-forgotten genre or reminds us of a time when petrol cost less than three arms and a leg.

Capcom Arcade on iPhone is the publisher’s attempt at rekindling some glorious gaming memories, albeit minus the sweat-filled rooms and the constant beep-beep-beep from adjacent cabinets.

When it launched on Apple’s Store, the free app Capcom Arcade comprised four titles from the ‘golden era’: Street Fighter II, Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, 1942, and Commando.

There is just one catch: if you want to test your Ryu reflexes more than three times a day, you have to cough up for tokens or buy the game outright as an in-app purchase.

As promised, though, Capcom have expanded their Arcade collection from a quartet to a sextet, supplementing the existing line-up with classic coin-op side-scroller Final Fight and vertical shmup 1943.

On review last November, AppSpy awarded Capcom Arcade 4 out of 5, so it’d be interesting to see if revisiting the game - with its new additions - would result in a higher score.

Oh, and, by the way, those in-app purchases are on sale for 99c until 7th April. Hadouuuuuuken.
