A Korean Ratings board classification for something called “Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara” has fueled speculation that Capcom will unveil Xbox 360 and PS3 ports of its pair of D&D beat-em-ups during PAX East.
Polygon spotted the Korean ratings classification for “Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara,” which could either be a compilation port of Capcom’s pair of D&D games from the 90’s–“Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara” and “Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom”–or an all-new title based in the Dungeons and Dragons universe. Siliconera, meanwhile, asserts that we could see an announcement about this title at PAX East.
Both games originally offered four-player co-op hack and slash action and “Tower of Doom” used the still hot-looking CP System II arcade board (“X-Men: Children of the Atom,” “Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors”).
Presumably, this means there aren’t any kinds of complicated licensing hurdles for the brand whose single-player efforts have mostly been through BioWare and Obsidian through the “Neverwinter” titles (I’m just thinking about all of the complications of getting the Marvel license again to port “Marvel Vs. Capcom 2”). If Capcom does plan to unveil the two ports, it would be the most readily accessible way to play both games since their original mid-90’s release in arcades and subsequent Saturn ports.
