Capcom officially announced the release of Chronicles of Mystara on Xbox 360 (via Xbox Live Arcade), PlayStation 3 (via PlayStation Network), and PC (via Steam) today. The collection includes two side-scrolling RPG titles, Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara and is priced at $14.99 or 1200 points. Chronicles of Mystara will also be released on Wii U eShop later this year.
Capcom worked closely with Wizards of the Coast to bring these beloved games back for all the D&D® fans on today’s consoles. Developed by Iron Galaxy, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara brings together two arcade classics – Dungeons & Dragons®: Tower of Doom™ and its sequel Dungeons & Dragons®: Shadow over Mystara™ – fully updated with HD graphics and a wealth of additional features. The highly requested games had previously only been available in arcades in the west and can now be enjoyed by a wider gaming audience.
Both titles mix intense 2D side scrolling action RPG to deliver a truly deep gameplay experience for up to four players as they battle online or locally against the iconic monsters of Dungeons & Dragons with a mix of melee, range and magic attacks. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara’s is powered by GGPO to offer seamless drop-in/drop-out online gameplay for up to four players in each of the title’s two modes. In addition to the classic arcade mode with its branching paths and multiple endings, players can utilize the all new House Rules feature which offers stackable game options to customize gameplay for a completely different experience. For instance, “Vampirism” awards health for every attack dealt to an enemy and “Lockpick” causes all chests to be open.
