Retro gamers, rejoice! Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium on Switch is the second serving of classic games from the Capcom library. Like the first game, which is a free download with just 1943: the Battle of Midway installed, the sequel comes with a free version of the sidescrolling shooter SonSon, before allowing players to individually purchase their favourites.
With the first collection enjoying both critical and commercial success, and continued calls from the gaming community to make older titles more accessible, it only makes sense that we’ll soon get a Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium release date on Switch. While we don’t know the full extent of the collection, the first Capcom Arcade package offered Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Strider, and Giga Wing, so we have to admit our hopes are pretty high for the next offering.
Unfortunately, it still doesn’t look like any of Capcom’s licensed games, such as Alien vs. Predator or Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, will make the cut for this version due to issues surrounding the rights. Even still, we’re looking forward to bringing the arcade to the living room for some retro gaming nights with plenty of variety.
When is the Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium release date?
Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact release date for Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium, but we don’t think it’ll be too far into the future. With Three Wonders, a trio of titles in itself, available to players who pre-order, or pick up an early copy, of the upcoming Capcom Fighting Collection. So, with any luck, you can turn back the years with Capcom’s arcade time machine sometime soon.
Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium is bringing another 32 arcade classics to Switch, PS4, XB1, and PC!
SonSon will be a free download with this collection, and pre-orders / early purchases of Capcom Fighting Collection will also get Three Wonders as a bonus at launch.
