Today Capcom announced a new side-scrolling four-player brawler called Dungeons & Dragon’s Chronicles of Mystara at its World of Capcom pane during PAX East 2013. The game mixes two old-school Dungeons & Dragons arcade games–Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara. The game will be available on the Wii U eShop for $15 and features four player drop-in/drop-out online co-op including full leaderboards. Local co-op will be a feature as well.

Other features include players being able to customize the game with house rules, finishing in-game challenges to level up characters and earn experience, and finding and earning Vault points, which unlocks special bonuses like character art.

Game release is set for June.

    • Nintedward

      These 2 games are a very nice addition to my wiiu game list for 2013 🙂

  • Nintedward

    Definitely getting this and ducktales. This game will be awesome with online!

  • Nothing5555

    Aww I remember playing this at the arcade, would be nice if they added additional content.

  • Scott Duperree

    Is this remastered? Never played, or heard of, the originals but it still looks old school in the video. Still looks pretty good, I am hyped about duck tales though.

    • RyuNoHadouken

      original 16 bit re-release!!!!

  • ECM

    Thank God, now I don’t have to buy it on PS3, where it’ll be trapped for all time 😛

  • [000]

    Capcom seems to have a big interest in the Wii U. I wonder when we’ll see some more 3rd parties join in.

    • dont get your hopes up Im sure it didnt take much to port this over, now makeing a good game from the ground up for the wii u that would show support and what the wii u needs

      • [000]

        I wasn’t referring to just this instance, but that is true.

      • Jeffery02

        Yeah. Sadly Ubisoft is really the only company that really seems to be behind the Wii U, besides Nintendo of course.

  • RyuNoHadouken

    i loved these games in the 16 bit era…i hope they dont change the controls…leave it how it was!!!!

  • Reminds me of games like Turtles in Time. Love the 4 player co-op. Definitely worthwhile a purchase.

    • uPadWatcher

      If Konami haven’t let go of the TMNT franchise, they would have made an arcade perfect sequel in Turtles in Time.

  • now this looks fun, but still waitting on an icewind dale 3 or just remake it like they did this just give extra things like quest and such now I’d buy that game more then once 🙂 but i can pretty much say I maybe the only one who would besides collectors

    ps: I dont mean make it look the same but just port it on over and fix the lines and blurryness and dont make it cartoony like this please

  • dgallo911

    wow 15 bucks is alot for a 15yr old -remastered game…..ive got the original versions on my phone and they were free. ill just port them over to my ouya once it arrives…
    for anyone that loves classic games and has android look up MAME roms. u can thank me afterwards

    • Nothing5555

      I agree, they should make it an HD version at least and maybe an expansion?

      • dgallo911

        for 15 bucks thats the least they could do. i dont understand why they dont make these classic games more affordable.

  • Kirzan

    I’m interested in this. Looks just a little “more than your typical brawler” to keep me in.

  • uPadWatcher

    Arcade bliss at its finest hour. I cannot wait to purchase D&D Chronicles of Mystara at the eShop for the U!

  • Focal1

  • Elitepwnsface

  • CuriousManiac

    Looks really cool, The Wii U Eshop could definetly use more titles like this!

  • CuriousManiac
