Capcom unleashes the dragon at PAX East
Prior to PAX East Capcom teased us all by saying there would be a "surprise or two" in store during its 'World of Capcom' panel.
It certainly wasn't kidding, as the company has not only confirmed that Duck Tales: Remastered will be making a welcome appearance this summer, but a Dungeons & Dragons collection is on the way as well.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is a HD collection of two Dungeons & Dragons arcade games by Capcom: Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara.
Just as in the arcade editions, up to four players will be able to do battle through hoards of mythical beasts from the Dungeons & Dragons universe. Technology has moved on a bit since those days however, and Capcom has made sure to make the game playable online. Four players can still drop in and out of gameplay and there will be two modes for them to play.
The first mode will be a classic arcade mode and will feature several different paths to navigate through, as well as a multitude of different endings to complete. There's also an all new mode known as House Rules, which allows the player to customise the gameplay for what could be a very interesting experience. Naturally, there'll also be an online leaderboard for those competitive dungeon masters out there.
Another new addition is the Character Visualiser, which will allow you to see which characters you and your buddies use the most, analysing it all and offering advice on how to create a more balanced multiplayer team. There are also several challenges to complete which provides additional experience for characters as well as coins, which can be spent on a host of unlockables.
Wii U owners will get something extra special thanks to the GamePad. Items may be selected and spells can be cast just be touching the screen - sounds like fun to us.
It's heading to the Wii U eShop, as well as other platforms, in June and will be $14.99/£11.99.
