Capcom Generation Vol. 1: Gekitsuiou no Jidai focuses on Capcom’s “1940s” series and contains the first three games of the series.

* 1942
* 1943: The Battle of Midway
* 1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen

– 1942 is a vertically scrolling shoot ’em up made by Capcom that was released for the arcade in 1984. It was the first game in the 194x series, followed by 1943: The Battle of Midway.

1942 is set in the Pacific theater of World War II. Despite the game being created by a Japanese company and staff, the goal is to reach Tokyo and destroy the entire Japanese air fleet. The player pilots a plane (dubbed the “Super Ace”, although its appearance is clearly that of a Lockheed P-38 Lightning), and has to shoot down enemy planes. Besides shooting, the player can also perform a Roll or “loop-the-loop” to avoid enemy fire.

It was ported by the European games publisher Elite Systems to the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. The game was included as part of Capcom Classics Collection for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 in 2005.

– 1943: The Battle of Midway (1943: Midway Kaisen in Japan) is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game released by Capcom in June 1987. Capcom released their own port for the NES, but the game has also been ported to the Atari ST, the ZX Spectrum, the Amstrad CPC, the Commodore 64 and the Amiga. In 2005 it was re–released for Xbox and PlayStation 2 as part of Capcom Classics Collection. The overall faithfulness and quality of execution of these third party versions varies greatly. 1943 is the second game in the 1940s series, following the successful 1942.

– 1943 Kai is the Japanese version of 1943.
