PAX: Capcom breathes new life into D&D arcade classics


1:45 PM on 03.22.2013



Capcom announced today at PAX that Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara, its sequel, would be getting remastered into an HD double-pack for modern platforms.

These two four-player arcade brawlers are getting a bunch of enhancements on top of their HD facelift, including a drop-in online feature, customizable rules, leaderboards, and in-game challenges that can be undetaken to gain level-ups and coins for spending in the vault, a "treasure trove" of unlockable content and extra goodies. The final extra is the Character Visualizer, which lets players track which character they and their friends use most often, the goal being to facilitate more balanced multiplayer parties. 

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is set to launch in June on PC, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Wii U eShop for $14.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points.
