Amazon Luna has unveiled its Retro Channel collection, plucked from a prestigious arcade catalogue of classics. Big names such as Capcom, Konami, and SNK have their games featured on the recently-launched video game streaming service.

Currently, the Amazon Luna Retro Channel is only available in the United States and is priced at $4.99 a month. Luna is Amazon’s latest bid to break into the video game industry, offering a growing list of games that can be streamed on PC, Mac, Fire TV, Fire tablets, Chromebook, iPhone, iPad, and Android phones.

Although in some ways similar to Google Stadia, there are some major differences. Amazon Luna has several different subscription tiers (or “Channels”), each dedicated to a particular genre or audience. There is Luna+ alongside the family and retro channels, as well as subscriptions for Ubisoft+ and Jackbox Games.

In addition, there is a small collection of free titles available to anyone with an active Amazon Prime subscription. The service is compatible with most devices and controllers with an Amazon Luna gamepad also available.
