Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara – Now Available

Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games is pleased to announce that Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is available today as a digital download from the North American PlayStation Network and globally via Steam and coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the European PlayStation Network from tomorrow, June 19. The title will be available for the Nintendo eShop on Wii U soon after.

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 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.

Further additions include a dynamic Challenge system that sets players in-game goals in return for character level-ups and points which can be spent in the Vault: a treasure trove of unlockables and gameplay loot. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara also features the Character Visualizer which lets players track which characters they and their friends use most often and can help create a more balanced multiplayer dungeon party, or point out which characters are most under-used; with further gameplay stats tracked via a global leaderboard. Lastly, owners of the Wii U version will be able to use the GamePad touch screen to select spells and items with ease, allowing for a more streamlined gameplay experience.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara will be priced at $14.99/€14.99/£11.99/1200MSP.

    Yeah, delaying the Wii U version is bs if you ask me. Why do PC users get it before console users? It’s already available on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/229480/

    If any platform should be last it should be the PC considering that emulated games like this don’t usually do well on the PC.
