Have you enjoyed Capcom’s Mega Man push on your handset? If so, you might be interested to learn that four more classic titles from the publisher are on the way.
Quarters not required
Capcom’s latest titles heading to mobile aren’t exactly in line with the Mega Man games that arrived not that long ago. Nope, these four are straight from the arcades, and not the NES. Not that that makes a huge difference, as they’re all Capcom classics, and I think all of them have also appeared on every consoles known to man – including the NES (or possibly SNES).
Here’s what’s on the way:
- 1942 Mobile – This vertically scrolling shoot ’em up tasks players with battling through the entire enemy fleet. Shoot down enemy planes, avoid enemy fire and perform rolls and loops to avoid certain death in this epic retro nail-biter.
- Ghosts‘N Goblins™Mobile – Return to the days of yesteryear in this famously difficult action-platformer. As Sir Arthur, you must battle against demons and undead in order to rescue the princess Prin-Prin.
- Ghouls’N Ghosts™ Mobile – Better, bigger and more beloved, this legendary side scrolling platformer pick up where Ghost ‘n Goblins ends.
- Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando Mobile – Armed with a sub-machine gun and a limited supply hand grenades, players battle through legions of enemy troops in this classic vertical scrolling shooter.
I can only imagine what playing either one of the GnG titles will be like with no buttons… ouch. I guess you could always use a controller though, if it’s supported. No word on whether or not that’s the case. What we do now however is that all four games will support online leaderboards. They’ll also have some interesting control options, and have “auto-fire and different button arrangements”.
Expect to see all four games hitting both iOS and Android handsets some time over the next “few months”.
