Capcom is entering the nostalgia market with its own plug-and-play arcade fight stick, preinstalled with 16 classic Capcom games. It's also in the shape of a giant Capcom logo, because why not?
The Capcom Home Arcade is a giant fight stick that plugs directly into your television via an HDMI cable with a USB power supply. Unlike other plug-and-play retro consoles like the SNES Classic or Genesis Mini, the Capcom Home Arcade isn't shaped like a smaller version of a retro console at all. Instead, it's a giant Capcom logo with two sets of arcade joystick controllers for local multiplayer.
The arcade stick features a pair of competition class Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT sticks with 8-way GT-Y directional gates and OBSF buttons. The 16 pre-installed games are also original Capcom CPS1 and CPS2 arcade ROMs with emulation work done by FB alpha.
The 16 classic Capcom games included in the cabinet are:
- Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
- Street Fighter 2 Turbo
- 1944: The Loop Master
- Alien vs. Predator
- Armored Warriors
- Capcom Sports Club
- Captain Commando
- Eco Fighters
- Final Fight
- Giga Wing
- Mega Man the Power Battle
- Ghouls 'N Ghosts
- Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting
The Capcom Home Arcade is available for pre-order now, but only through the Capcom European store. It is priced at €229.99, or about $258 USD. There's no word yet on pricing for a North American release.
