Capcom Adds More Browser-Compatible Retro Games To Its Website, Including ‘Super Street Fighter II’ & ‘Magic Sword’

You know, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when Capcom put a small selection of browser-compatible retro games on its Capcom Town Digital Museum website in June of last year. I was even more surprised when it added additional titles over the year, including the likes of Breath of Fire and Captain Commando. Given the site was connected to the company’s 40th anniversary, I certainly didn’t expect Capcom to keep adding games in 2024. But here we are! Some new games, popular and lesser-known, all fully playable on your mobile device’s browser.

Just to get you up to date, the previous selection of games included:

  • Street Fighter II (Super NES version)
  • Final Fight (Super NES version)
  • Final Fight 2 
  • Mega Man 
  • Mega Man 2
  • Mega Man X
  • Ghosts ‘n Goblins (NES version)
  • Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Breath of Fire
  • Breath of Fire II
  • Captain Commando (Super NES version)

Certainly a robust list of games, even if playing them with a virtual controller can be a little awkward in places. Anyway, as noted, we have some new games to play. A very Street Fighter-heavy selection, but there’s at least one cool surprise in here. The new games are:

  • Magic Sword (Super NES version)
  • 2010 Street Fighter 
  • Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (Super NES version)
  • Street Fighter Alpha 2 (Super NES version)
  • Destiny of an Emperor (!)

Yes, you can now play the arcade classic Street Fighter Alpha 2 as the creators intended: via the Super NES version in a browser on your phone, using virtual buttons. Hot. All joking aside, these are free without any real strings attached, so it’s hard to complain much. And wow, hey, Destiny of an Emperor! That’s a really cool NES RPG that Capcom almost never reissues due to the attached license. You know what plays perfectly well with virtual buttons? RPGs. Get on that game if you haven’t played it before.

That’s quite a solid selection of games you can play, though do be careful about your browser deleting the cookies that contain your RPG game saves. I’ve had one heart break with Breath of Fire that way. Anyway, I’ll give you one more way to click through to that website. You know, so you don’t have to scroll up to the start of the article. It’s right here.  Go, play.
