In a release sent to VG247, Capcom confirmed that the app will go live on February 19th, with staggered game packs releasing between then and early May. The games, which originally released between 1984 and 1988 and can be bought singularly or in packs. Buy all 15 games however, and you get two absolutely free.
The app will come with trophies and achievements, DIP switch options, HD optimisation, bonus unlocks, online leaderboards and casual play, which lets players tweak elements of games to make them easier or slightly different.
