Capcom will hold concerts on March 19 in Shanghai and March 26 in Beijing, the Japanese video game company recently announced.

Audiences can enjoy live music from more than 10 Capcom masterpieces dating from the 1980s up to the present day, including Mega Man, Street Fighter and Monster Hunter.

Video Game Orchestra, a Boston-based group that performs its own arrangements of game music with a combination of rock and orchestral music, will play live during the China shows.

In a statement, Capcom said: "This tour differs from events that have targeted only gamers by brining to life a forward-thinking musical project that can engage music fans and general audiences as well."

After the shows in China, the concerts will travel to North America before expanding to other areas in 2017, with the goal of performing more than 30 concerts across the globe.

Capcom has released 69 different games and have sold more than 1 million copies since its founding in 1983.
