After yesterday’s tease, Capcom have revealed their new retro project: a premium two-player arcade stick that plugs directly into your TV and comes loaded with dozens of Capcom titles called the Capcom Home Arcade, which will be released on October 25th, with pre-orders available now on Amazon UK.
The arcade machine will include games like Street Fighter 2, Alien vs Predator, Darkstalkers and more, which should please those tired of downloading shady emulators off the internet. The Home Arcade also comes equipped with two competition class Sanwa sticks and buttons for that true arcade authenticity. What’s more, Capcom Home Arcade is wi-fi enabled, allowing you to upload your high scores to global leaderboards.
The full list of games coming to the Capcom Home Arcade 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 – Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting – Mega Man: The Power Battle – Progear – Strider – Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
While this all sounds great, there is a catch: the Capcom Home Arcade costs £200, which is a hefty price point for what ostensibly a retro plug and play machine with fancy sticks. What stings even more is that this is the first time that the beat ’em up Alien vs Predator has been available outside of arcades, and its locked behind this triple figure price tag.
That said, the Capcom Home Arcade machine looks like it could be a great addition to any retro fan’s collection. Will you be forking over £200 for it this October? Let us know in the comments.
