Capcom’s new product it teased recently has been revealed to be the Capcom Home Arcade, a plug and play device that comes pre-loaded with 16 different Capcom games. The device looks to bring an arcade experience into players’ homes with two fight pads built into one device to allow people to play either by themselves or with one another in games like Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Mega Man: The Power Battle, and many more.
A teaser for the new product was originally shared by Capcom on Monday and said the announcement of whatever it is would be coming soon, but an accurate tip provided to Nintendo Life suggested it would be the device that’s been revealed now instead of a normal collection of games. The inclusion of the Alien vs. Predator arcade game was a noticeable selling point for the teaser, and it looks as though that game is also included in the collection. It’s the first time it’ll officially be ported to another platform since its 1994 release.
“Emblazoned with Capcom's iconic duotone logo the Capcom Home Arcade delivers a classic single and multiplayer arcade gaming experience,” Capcom said about the device. “Featuring 16 of the best Capcom titles from the golden-age of arcade gaming, the two full-size premium stick and button configurations allow these games to be played the way they were meant to be played.
The device that’s seen on Capcom’s site and in the trailer above will connect to a user’s TV via HDMI and is powered with a micro USB. It also has wi-fi built into it so that users can check their standings on the leaderboards for its various games.
