The Capcom Home Arcade is a plug-and-play mini console that comes pre-loaded with 16 classic arcade titles. Its logo-shaped design features “a pair of competition class Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT sticks with 8-way GT-Y directional gates and OBSF buttons for the finest precision, response times and durability.”

Each of its pre-installed games are ROMs from the original Capcom CP System, and emulation is handled through FB Alpha in order to deliver the most authentic home arcade experience. Here is the list of titles available upon launch:

  • 1944: The Loop Master
  • Alien vs. Predator
  • Armored Warriors
  • Capcom Sports Club
  • Captain Commando
  • Cyberbots
  • Darkstalkers
  • Eco Fighters
  • Final Fight
  • Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Gigawing
  • Mega Man: The Power Battle
  • Progear
  • Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
  • Strider
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

In addition to single-player, co-op, and head-to-head modes, players may upload their scores via the onboard WiFi to a worldwide leaderboard.

While the Capcom Home Arcade doesn’t launch until October 25th, and North American pricing is currently unknown, pre-orders in the UK are €229.99, or $259.54 at the time of this writing. You can keep a closer eye on updates through Capcom UK’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

  1. Way too expensive for what it offers, but that’s expected from Capcom.

  2. It was a great idea….

    But my god the execution all around is horrible.

    -Design of the board itself looks uncomfortable.

    -Can this be used outside of the built-in games, and would it only register as one player if it does (defeating the purpose)?

    -Some of the games are 4-player, so how will that work aside from possibly having to spend another $260?

    -Most of the games on this aside from AvP are on (arguably better) compilations on consoles with Online Play, which makes it less enticing.

    -For $260, you could get the SNK equivalent of this, which is the Neo Geo mini, THREE TIMES, and it has a much bigger game list, and is more feasible to play on the go.

    Seriously, Capcom needs to consider cleaning house at their Fighting Game Division (more than likely the “brains” behind this) IMMEDIATELY, because there is very little here to convince anyone beyond the die-hard Capcom fan to buy it.

  3. How UGLY is that? Goddamn. You would have to be a fanatic to want THAT sitting on your desk/table.

  4. If it works, I’ll buy it for AVP alone

    Lol its ugly. And what a lousy game list. Ghosts and Goblins…Really? they could fit thousands of games on there…but no..16 is enough huh?

  6. Honestly not interested except for maybe a nice collecter’s item for capcom fans, the board itself looks beautiful and would look nice on a living room table. But it does look uncomfortable for 2 players to use.

  7. Type text here…This may not happen FB Alpha has non-commercial license. Here’s a good video by someone who used to work on it – Modern Vintage Gamer

  8. I just bought a Raspberry Pie and arcade sticks and built my own arcade. Cost me around 70 dollars. The flipside is that I have 4000 games more to play.
