We already have the SNES Classic, NES Classic, and PlayStation Classic so what else could we need? Well according to Capcom, we'll need its new Capcom Home Arcade console. It's not exactly a reimagining of a previous console the company released, but it will bring 16 classic games to your living room.
As you can see the console is shaped around Capcom's iconic logo and features two sticks with 8-way GT-Y directional gates and OBSF buttons. According to the company it features a micro USB port for power, HDMI out, and has onboard Wi-Fi. Its 16 pre-installed titles include:
- 1944: The Loop Master
- Alien vs Predator
- Armored Warriors
- Capcom Sports Club
- Captain Commando
- Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness
- Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
- Eco Fighters
- Final Fight
- Ghouls 'n Ghosts
- Giga Wing
- Mega Man: The Power Battle
- Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
- Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
Capcom Home Arcade is set to release on October 25, 2019. You can currently pre-order it from Capcom's European store for €229.99. More retailers are expected to be announced soon.
That price feels expensive compared to the classic console releases, especially when it only comes with a small handful of Capcom's many arcade games. However, there are plenty of games that weren't released to a console, so maybe that's pretty special.
I agree, very expensive.
very expensive, and who wants a multitude of consoles tow switch between. Get the games on backward compatability if not already there imho
Micro-USB? Lost me there. Every main device that I use has USB-C, including my professional camera. Micro-USB has been banned from existence for my future purchases. I'd love to see a Sega Naomi or Sega Arcade home system full of their 3D arcade games from the late 90s and beyond.
Initially I was like, that can't possibly be the actual design of the thing... then I realised, that IS actually the design of the thing. That is horrid, just plain terrible, why would you have a single image over the buttons and device?
