Capcom Home Arcade announced for Europe

Capcom’s new challenger tweet was teasing the Capcom Home Arcade, a classic game system similar to the Nintendo Classic. It’s an arcade system that contains 16 classic Capcom Arcade games for two players. The price is €229.99 (approx $260) which is quite pricey for an emulator machine. The high cost is due to the quality parts provided and an emulator.

For $260 you will get high-quality Sanwa parts which are extremely popular for high-quality Arcade sticks. The emulator is the FB Alpha Emulator which is a high-quality Arcade Emulator for consoles.

The design is quite obnoxious. It’s a huge Capcom logo that measures roughly 29 inches wide, 8.5 inches deep, by 4.25 inches tall. The Home Arcade has a built-in Wi-Fi to connect to a leaderboard which will allow you to show off your high scores similar to the old school days. Similar to other classic consoles, it’s power is via a micro USB and HDMI. However, the Capcom Home Arcade is meant to be played on a table to lay the arcade stick or on your lap.

The Capcom Home Arcade will have 16 games:Image result for capcom home arcade

  1. 1944: The Loop Master
  2. Alien vs. Predator
  3. Armored Warriors
  4. Capcom Sports Club
  5. Captain Commando
  6. Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness
  7. Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
  8. Eco Fighters
  9. Final Fight
  10. Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  11. Gigawing
  12. Mega Man: The Power Battle
  13. Progear
  14. Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting
  15. Strider
  16. Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

Unfortunately, the Marvel vs Capcom titles aren’t available most likely due to licensing issues. Strangely, Street Fighter 2: Super Turbo isn’t available. That version of SF 2 is generally considered the popular version for tournaments. I believe it may be due to Capcom re-releasing the title for modern consoles. The Capcom Home Arcade can be pre-ordered in Europe for October 25th. There is no confirmation as of this article on whether the system will release in the US or other regions.
