A bundle featuring all three Capcom Arcade Stadium game packs and the Mini-Album is available for MSRP $47.99.
Lastly, Capcom revealed that Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One Consoles and Steam on June 1.

A modern reboot of the legendary Ghosts ‘n Goblins series, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection offers several features and modes to aid players on their adventure. With multiple difficulty modes including Squire, Knight and Legend, players of all skill levels can guide the gallant knight Arthur on his quest to rescue the princess. A special Page mode is also available, allowing untested apprentices to respawn on the spot with unlimited lives. Beginner knights can also experience Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection with a friend or family member through two-player local co-op mode. The second player assists Arthur as one of three supporting characters: Barry, who creates barriers for protection; Kerry, who carries Arthur through danger; and Archie, who creates bridges to cross.
Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is available to pre-order today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Players who pre-order Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to experience the title through Early Access 24 hours before its official release on June 1, 2021.
