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.
