RadarPlays - 1943: Battle of Midway

Capcom has a long history, as proven by its deep library of titles outside of franchises like Street Fighter, Mega Man, and Resident Evil. Capcom recently decided to share some of its lesser-known classics with gamers via Capcom Arcade Cabinet on XBLA/PSN. More than 15 arcade originals will be released over the next couple months , and this week’s RadarPlays will give you your first taste of the first pack of games. Check out the WWII-flavored shooter, 1943, in this thoroughly pixelated playthrough.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past, Wednesdays (and sometimes Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending on the week) is reserved for new releases, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of.

    As someone who has played the actual arcade version, I can say that Black Tiger is super awesome and ridiculously tough. Its kinda like Dark Souls made into a 2D 1980's game.

    How's it feel to be old Henry?
