While Sony and Sega have followed the footsteps of Nintendo in the art of nostalgia-baiting by launching miniature versions of their classic consoles, Capcom has decided to do it in a different way. So, say hello to Capcom Home Arcade.
In general, the Home Arcade consists of two arcade sticks conjoined into one body that has the shape of Capcom logo. This is so that you can have the old arcade experience of side-by-side multiplayer as you play the system’s 16 preinstalled games.
For arcade aficionados, the Capcom Home Arcade uses Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT sticks, but Capcom did not say if the Home Arcade can be modded if you want switches of your own choosing. The games themselves will be emulated from the original Capcom CPS1 and CPS2 arcade ROMs.
In terms of connectivity, it connects to your TV via HDMI, and is powered via Micro-USB. Unlike other classic mini consoles, it also comes with WiFi connectivity for online leaderboards.
The Capcom Home Arcade will launch on 25 October 2019 and is currently available for pre-order on the Capcom Europe online store for EUR229.99 (~RM1072). For now, the company has not yet revealed if the Home Arcade will be made available in other markets.
