Capcom reveals Capcom Home Arcade retro arcade device


As they’ve been teasing for a few days now, Capcom (Europe) has revealed the Capcom Home Arcade, which can best be described as an all-in-one, plug-and-play arcade device.  The Capcom Home Arcade includes a pair of authentic joysticks and set of buttons along with 16 retro Capcom arcade titles that can be hooked up to your TV/display of your choosing for some 1 to 2 player action.

Capcom USA hasn’t said all that much yet, but the Capcom Home Arcade pre-orders (official site here) are listed as around 230 Euro (including VAT), which would put the US version at potentially $200+.

The Capcom logo-shaped controller set features a pair of high quality Sanwa sticks and 16 OBSF buttons, so it’s not a cheap knockoff.  It also features WiFi to allow for high scores to be updated and an extra USB connection for… something.  It can be hooked up to a display with a presumably kinda long HDMI cable.  Games in the collection range from Street Fighter II Hyper Edition to the beloved Alien vs Predator.

See the announcement trailer, some product shots and the description below!
