Coming to PSN this Week: Capcom's Final Fight: Double Impact

231w ago - Capcom's PR Specialist Jason Allen has revealed today to fans that Final Fight: Double Impact will be coming to PSN this week.

To quote: Capcom's ready to unleash the next masterpiece in its retro digital dynasty. Make way for Final Fight: Double Impact, hitting PlayStation Network with a vintage vengeance!

Starting tomorrow, April 15th, fans can own two incredible Capcom classic releases – [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] – all for the price of one ($9.99).

In Final Fight, players follow the heart-pounding adventures of Cody, Guy, and Haggar – three heroes fighting their way across crime-ridden Metro City in hopes of saving Haggar's daughter from the evil clutches of Mad Gear. In Magic Sword, users will take on the role of a brave warrior and his eight allies, all bearing the daunting responsibility of cleansing evil forces from an ancient tower.

These two games take us back to a time when arcades were sanctuaries of youthful bliss. They are un-self-conscious treasures, clear in their pursuit to inflame the imagination and turn players into brawling action heroes. At [Register or Login to view links], we've sought to reacquaint our fans with this experience and refine it in the process.

Both Final Fight and Magic Sword are playable in HD, leveraging modern technology to elevate the visuals to the eye-popping standards of today. But we realize that some fans are purist about there retro experience and for them we've provided mode options that allow them to toggle back to a classic mode that renders the game in its original format.

Outside of mailing a real live arcade cabinet to your house, Capcom has gone the extra mile in delivering the best retro experience possible. Play settings offer a classic arcade bezel to play with that looks so real, you'll be looking for a slot on your console to drop a token in (we promise, it's not there).

The "GGPO" network technology creates a frame-accurate arcade experience across the internet with online voice chat and the ability to join games in progress. Thanks to the innovative open invite system, other fighters can jump into a game seamlessly just like the kids did in the pizza parlors and 7-Elevens of yore.

And of course we've got essentials like the leaderboards for both games that track scores and instigate the inevitable smack-talk buffoonery we all love.

Final Fight: Double Impact has trophies and a ton of rewards. Cool nuggets like the collectable art pieces will make multiple playthroughs all the more satisfying.

Vault mode houses the gallery of curated pieces which are fun to look at in between the head-bashing. Other extras include original game art, full motion video (including a long-forgotten epic Final Fight cartoon), manga chapters from Udon, and fan art for completing in-game challenges. There's also an awesome soundtrack composed by the talented team behind the score for Bionic Commando Rearmed. Original music will be available as well.

We are incredibly excited to finally bring these games to the PlayStation 3 audience. Make sure to hit the PlayStation Store tomorrow and download this historic release!

Never played that one. Did it have an online co-op option?

Can't even count the number of quarters I wasted in the arcades growing up on this game alone. While yes I have the emulator for it (and yes i know there's an online emulator version), I've always wanted to see games like this presented to the masses on a "legit" platform.

I'm really looking forward to the online aspect of it. There was nothing more exciting than playing the game, then having someone else walk up and join in on the fight.

DAMN! Now I really want to log into PSN to buy this, but I must remain strong and not update.
