Capcom announces four new mobile games.

Ghosts‘N Goblins

Capcom is bringing 1942, Ghosts’N Goblins, Ghouls’N Ghosts, and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando to iOS and Android devices, the company announced. All four titles are expected to launch “within the next few months.”

Each game “maintains fidelity to the originals,” while offering the option to play in modes that “take full advantage” of touch screen devices. In addition to “Classic” and “Casual” gameplay modes, several titles will offer control options such as auto-fire and different button arrangements. Each game will also feature leaderboards.

Here’s an overview of each game:

  • 1942 Mobile – This vertically scrolling shoot ’em up tasks players with battling through the entire enemy fleet. Shoot down enemy planes, avoid enemy fire and perform rolls and loops to avoid certain death in this epic retro nail-biter.
