Capcom released two Dungeons & Dragons brawlers in the mid-1990s, and they are now bringing them back as a collection called the Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara coming this June, the company announced at its panel at PAX East today.
The compilation, developed by Iron Galaxy, will include Tower of Doom from 1993 and Shadow Over Mystara form 1996, confirming a recent listing by the Korean ratings board. It will be available digitally for Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC for $14.99 (1200 Microsoft Points).
The game, which will offer drop-in, drop-out play for up to four players, will be much the same as the original with classic arcade mode, but will add a new House Rules feature to customize the experience. On Wii U, players will also use the GamePad to enable touch-screen spell and item selection.
A new Character Visualizer will let players track which characters are used most often and "help create a more balanced multiplayer dungeon party," according to Capcom's press release. In addition, players will also be able utilize a challenge system that will earn coins to be spent on unlockables and in-game loot.
