Capcom Home Arcade plug-and-play device announced, due out in October

That logo is annoying, and Raspberry Pi + Retro Pie can do it all

Capcom Home Arcade plug-and-play device announced

Featuring 16 games and due out in October.




Capcom has announced Capcom Home Arcade, a plug-and-play device featuring 16 classic Capcom arcade games due out on October 25 in Europe for €229.99. Details on the North American release will be announced “soon.” Pre-orders are available now via Capcom Store Europe, with more retailers to be announced.

Here are the details, via its official website:

Celebrating a True Champion of Arcade Gaming


Emblazoned with Capcom’s iconic duotone logo the Capcom Home Arcade delivers a classic single and multiplayer arcade gaming experience.

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.

Authentic Gaming

Featuring 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.

The 16 pre-installed games are from the original Capcom CPS1 and CPS2 arcade ROMs with emulation provided by FB Alpha, delivering an authentic & accurate arcade experience exclusively for the Capcom Home Arcade.

Play, Compete, Cooperate

Break some high scores in single player, team up with a friend in co-op multiplayer or destroy them in a head-to-head battle. Then upload your best scores via the Capcom Home Arcade’s onboard WiFi to a Worldwide High Score Leaderboard to see how you match up against other players across the globe.

Featuring 16 Classic Capcom Arcade Titles
  • 1944: The Loop Master
  • Alien vs. Predator
  • Armored Warriors
  • Capcom Sports Club
  • Captain Commando
  • Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness
  • Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
  • ECO Fighters
  • Final Fight
  • Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Giga Wing
  • Meta Man: The Power Battle
  • Progear
  • Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
  • Strider
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II: Turbo

How it Works

Simply plug and play!

Connect the supplied HDMI cable from your Capcom Home Arcade to your TV, and the supplied USB cable to a USB power supply and turn on.

Agreed, that thing looks hideous and stupidly unconfortable to play unless you have a desk or table to rest in. Would have preferred a single joystick.

Capcom is really burning out all this compilations they have been releasing lately.

nice that they are using actual HQ joysticks for this.
I'm not worried about the look of it, more of the price of it is too expensive for the amount of games on it. It's almost more expensive than the arcade1ups and those have more hardware into them.

Plus, why add wifi support to it and no online multiplayer!

Yeah, this will cost almost as much as an actual console and for what little they offer it's just not worthy.

Also it's indeed dumb that this doesn't have useful online features.

It would be awesome if this worked on consoles and PC for use as a controller.

I would buy it for sure then. But, I can build my own for under 50 dollars using the same parts to use for each controller, so I probably wouldn't even buy it for that.

Even the bootleg arcade sticks work on most consoles and PCs.

I have no doubt that this is going to be able to work on pc with some adjustments, afterall this uses an open souce emulator Final Burn Alpha wich is meting criticism because it's not the most stable out there.
