Capcom Giving An Arcade Game Away As Free PSN / XBLA Download

By Spencer . February 7, 2013 . 12:10am

Black Tiger (aka Black Dragon in Japan), Capcom’s spiritual successor to Ghosts ‘n Goblins and precursor to Magic Sword, will be available for free. Capcom is giving the ’80s arcade game away on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade as part of Capcom Arcade Cabinet.


Other games like Sonson, 1942, and Commando with modern features like online co-op will be paid downloads. So, Black Tiger is essentially a "Trojan tiger" to get gamers to download the Capcom Arcade Cabinet on their consoles, but you don’t have to get ExedExes if you don’t want to.

  • That was really not a very good game.

    I do wonder who those games were you ran around KICKING bad guys, the game were two robots fused together and the game were you had a sword and shield and large sprites was. Looked interesting.

    • Zarx

      The one with the mechs is Side Arms Hyper Dyne and the one with the large shield after 1943 was Trojan.

        when i was a kid there was a pizza hut near us that had a side arms cocktail cabinet, that was cool.

  • So are they free on the US PSN or is this only in Japan?

  • Zonic505

    Really dug the music playing during the 2nd half during the trailer.

    & is that 1943 Kai & Vulgus that I spot as the bonus games?

  • Setsu Oh

    i was thinking about this. its alright that it is unknown, at least one free is a clever move

  • Zarx

    Seeing 1943 made me wanna dig up a copy of Twinkle Star Sprites, though I do wonder if we’re getting Side Arms.
    Side Note: I wonder if we’re ever gonna get ports for Red Earth and Tech Romancer.

  • ………trophies?

  • ddh819

    How can I download this on my PS3?

  • Solomon_Kano

    A lot of these games I’ve never played, but they look pretty good. I might have to look into some of the bundles.

  • How do you get this? I looked on the PSN store yesterday and found nothing.
