Following yesterday's Direct and the launch of the Capcom Arcade Stadium, Nintendo has made a couple of classic games free for Switch owners. The first is a permanently free title, the shoot'em up arcade game 1943: The Battle of Midway. Set in the Pacific theater of WWII, the game sends players to fight the Japanese air fleet responsible for attacking an American aircraft carrier. The game features 16 stages with the final stage being against the battleship Yamato.

The other free offering is a limited time offering, the original Ghosts 'n Goblins. This game is only available for free until February 25th when Ghost 'n Goblins Resurrection releases. After that point, it will become a stand-alone purchase. The game is also included in several Capcom Arcade Stadium packs.

Details on both games, and all the other games on the Capcom Arcade Stadium can be found on the Capcom site.
