Capcom Arcade Stadium is a new compilation of 32 classic arcade games. Here’s the full list of included titles, and how to get them.
Capcom Arcade Stadium was revealed during The Game Awards 2020 as a new downloadable compilation for the Nintendo Switch.
The collection begins with a free copy of the classic 1987 shoot ’em up 1943 – The Battle of Midway –, and an additional 31 games are available to buy as DLC. Three separate bundles highlight a different era of Capcom’s arcade history covering the period from 1984 to 2001. If you buy all three packs, you’ll also receive the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins for free, although the game is also available as a standalone purchase.
Each game comes with a host of new features, including an updated HD display output and an obligatory selection of retro CRT filters. The speed and difficulty level of each game is also adjustable, plus there’s an instant rewind feature to make each one that little bit more accessible. On the titles that support multiplayer, up to four players can play together.
In design and delivery, it’s reminiscent of the NES and SNES collections that are available with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
Here is the complete list of included games. The price of each DLC bundle is yet to be announced, but we’ll update this page when we get confirmation.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
