Capcom Home Arcade is an Outrageously Priced Plug-and-Play Retro Console

It's certainly a Capcom machine alright.

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
  • Cyberbots
  • Eco Fighters
  • Final Fight
  • Progear
  • Giga Wing
  • Mega Man the Power Battle
  • Ghouls 'N Ghosts
  • Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting
  • Strider.

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.
