Capcom's arcade classic Wolf of the BF:Commando MOBILE shoots onto Android

Capcom seems to be on a roll with their classic releases coming to Android. First, it was the lackluster Mega Man Mobile games, then 1942 Mobile and Ghosts 'N Goblins Mobile. Today Capcom has released Wolf of the BF:Commando MOBILE, an old-school arcade shooter. Now, if you are saying to yourself, "why have I never heard of Wolf of the BF?" Well, the answer is that you may know it better by its US NES title of Commando. That's right, the NES Capcom classic Commando was just released -- but does it retain that certain je ne sais quoi from yesteryear?

The original Ghosts 'N Goblins comes to the Play Store for one dollar

As part of its recent push to mobilize its classic arcade portfolio, Capcom has dusted off 1985's famous action-platformer for an Android release. Ghosts 'N Goblins, first released in the arcade more than 30 years ago, now has an official port in the Play Store going for 99 cents. It's playable on just about any phone or tablet running Android 4.1 or above, but sadly, not with Android TV or Bluetooth controllers. As some of the game's bad guys would say: boo.

Capcom releases 1942 Mobile, but is it any good?

What is this? Another classic Capcom title with the word "Mobile" affixed at the end? If you think that looks eerily familiar to the Mega Man Mobile games recently released on the Play Store, you would be correct. Sadly, this means that 1942 Mobile is not a port of the arcade classic but a rehash of one of their mobile JAVA releases from years back. Yep that is correct, this is a port of a flip-phone game. While not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself the question remains... has Capcom learned from past mistakes?

Capcom plans to bring classic Ghosts N Goblins, Ghouls N Ghosts, Commando, and 1942 arcade games to Android

Capcom's big push to bring Mega Man titles to Android didn't go over very well. Neither did its first Android title, Apollo Justice, which came without the chapter-by-chapter pricing of the iOS version. But maybe the third time will be the charm. Today the game publisher announced its intention to re-release mobile versions of four of its classic arcade games: Ghosts N Goblins, Ghouls N Ghosts, 1942, and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando. Unfortunately there are no dates or prices available at the moment.

All six original Mega Man games are now on the Play Store, and yup, they're terrible

Please don't give Capcom any money for its official Mega Man Android ports. The company hasn't earned any. You'd think that almost 30-year-old games, designed to run on a console with less computational power than the average DVD player, could be ported to Android with relative ease. You would be wrong. All six of the original Nintendo Entertainment System Mega Man games are now on the Play Store for two bucks a pop, and they're just as good as that trailer indicated they would be. So, they suck.

Well, it turns out those Android Mega Man ports look like a tremendous pile of crap

Capcom will release the original six Mega Man games on mobile in January for $2 each

Here's an interesting bit of news for nostalgic mobile gamers: Mega Man is coming to Android. Quite a lot of Mega Man, in fact: the first six games from the original platforming series will arrive on Google Play in January, according to a press release issued by publisher Capcom. Mega Man 1 through 6, all originally released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, will be available for $2 each. The first game in the series was released in 1987, almost 30 years ago, with the 6th entry coming out in 1993.

[No Objections] Capcom favorite Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney lands in the Play Store for $16

The long-running Ace Attorney series from Capcom manages a practically impossible feat: making players sympathize with defense attorneys. With a mix of classic adventure game elements and anime-style hyper-dramatic courtroom scenes, the games have become incredibly popular both in Japan and with a worldwide audience. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, the fourth game in the series (and the first to break away from the iconic Phoenix Wright protagonist), is now live on the Play Store for $15.99.

Resident Evil 5 Lands On The SHIELD TV, But You'll Need Ten Bucks And 5.5GB Of Free Space To Play It

Long ago in the far-off time of last year, NVIDIA announced a handful of current and last-gen console titles would be released for the Android TV-powered SHIELD. It took a long time, but eventually most of the promised high-profile games came along, including Metal Gear Rising, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and War Thunder, but one of the more long-standing franchises was still a no-show before today. Capcom's Resident Evil, or at least the fifth entry in the main series, is available on the SHIELD TV right now.

Interested to know what happens when LG and Capcom get behind closed doors? An exclusive deal regarding the Android version of Street Fighter IV seems to be the end result, judging by the announcement made by LG this morning.

Street Fighter IV will be available exclusively for three months on LG's 'upcoming HD smartphone', which is rumored to be sporting a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, Android 2.3, and a 4.5-inch AH-IPS display running at 720p. Naturally, LG refrained from blurting out the actual specs of this monster device in its Street Fighter IV announcement, so we'll just have to trust that the rumors are true.
