Huge Capcom Announcement - Home Arcade


Recommended Posts

It's a (massive!) standalone 2-Player arcade stick shaped like the Capcom logo. It plugs directly into an HDMI port (plus USB for power supply).

 

Comes preloaded with 16 games and has in-built WiFi for online leaderboards etc.

 

It's massive!

 

 

Out in October for about £200(!).

If this also works on PC and is a decent size I am in.  Surely it would need to be 2 player though?

 

I guess it ought to plus straight into any HDMI port? Maybe you'll plug a stick directly into a friend's for two player?

It's a shame a lot of the games I'd really want are the ones that were excluded from the Capcom Walk and Brawl collection due to licensing issues :( . Although there were a bunch of great shmups as well.

 

Alien Vs Predator seems likely so hopefully they'll have some of the other licenses.

The £200 suggested in that Nintendo Life article seems rather ambitious. 

 

Yeah I'd basically want it to work as a controller for all of the current consoles for that price. If it's easy to mod with a load of other games it might be a nice alternative to those Pandora boxes since you can be more confident it's genuine.

 

I do wish the announcement was a new Capcom vs Capcom fighting game instead though, haha.

for less than 200 you can get a Pandora box twin stick set up with HDMI and a couple of thousand games though and I imagine inside will be just some sort of single board android thing just like the Pandoras (and NES, SNES, NeoGeo and Playstation minis)

Seems kind of weird when they just released the bmup bundle last year. Alternatively - if they're milking their fans with as many collections as they can dream up - it's an ingenious move. Whatever it is, I'm hoping for multiplayer options and decent netcode. :)
