Capcom Arcade Stadium, a collection of 32 classic games from the company’s history, is coming to Nintendo Switch in February 2021. It’s packaged as a free download, with games sold as downloadable content packs. 1943 -The Battle of Midway- will be included for free.

This collection packs in some extra features for these games. These include rewind, difficulty, game speed and visual filters. There are global leaderboards for individual games, as well as special weekly challenges. You can even make it look like you’re playing the game in the original arcade cabinet, if you want.
