Capcom Arcade Stadium will make you pay extra to cheat, hits PS4, Xbox One and PC in May

Capcom Arcade Stadium is Capcom's latest arcade compilation, and it’s going to make you pay extra if you want to cheat when it lands on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The game is set to launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 25 – meaning it’ll be available on new-gen hardware via backwards compatibility – and it’ll sell invincibility across all games in the pack as paid DLC. There’s no word on how much this bonus bit of cheat-tech will cost at the time of writing, though.

Similarly to when Capcom Arcade Stadium launched on Nintendo Switch back on February 17, the game will come free as a ‘container’ for multiple add-on packs with one game gratis – 1943: The Battle of Midway. Everything else will be paid.

Additionally, you can spend more money to unlock bonus display frames. These are effectively wallpapers that will appear behind the 4:3 display that the games themselves run in (you know, to feel more authentically arcade-y).

You can buy each of the packs, listed below, at $15 a piece. Or you can opt to fork out $40 for the lot. It’s worth noting Capcom is promising more packs for Capcom Arcade Stadium in the future, too.

Dawn of the Arcade (1984-1988)
Pirate Ship Higemaru
Tatakai no Banka
Legendary Wings
Bionic Commando
Forgotten Worlds
Ghouls ‘n Ghosts

Arcade Revolution (1989 to 1992)
Dynasty Wars
Final Fight
1941: Counter Attack
Senjo no Okami II
Mega Twins
Carrier Air Wing
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior
Captain Commando
Varth: Operation Thunderstorm

Arcade Evolution (1992 to 2001)
Warriors of Fate
Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
Super Street Fighter II Turbo
Powered Gera: Strategic Variant Armor Equipment
Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness
19XX: The War Against Destiny
Battle Circuit
Giga Wing
1944: The Loop Master

If you're a fan of the more retro Capcom output, you'll also be pleased to note that Ghosts 'N Goblins Resurrection is coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC on June 1, too, complete with new stages, new weapons, a two-player co-op mode, and updated accessibility features.

In our Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection review, Alex Donaldson called the modern take on the classic "a lovingly crafted, hard as nails revival".
