Capcom Home Arcade ready to pummel you with nostalgia this October – CNET

Capcom

Revisit your arcade days with classic games like Street Fighter 2, Ghouls 'N Ghosts and Final Fight with the Capcom Home Arcade, an arcade-style controller shaped like the developer's famous logo.

It's slated to ship this Oct. 25 and is available for preorder now, (only in Europe for the moment), via Capcom's online store. It's priced at 230 euros, which converts to about $260, £200 or AU$360, and comes with these games:

Capcom has packed an entire arcade machine into the just the controller, including on-board Wi-Fi. You connect it to a TV or monitor via HDMI. Capcom licensed the rights to the Austrian games publisher Koch Media, which manufactures the hardware.

It has "a pair of competition-class Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT sticks with eight-way GT-Y directional gates and OBSF buttons," according to the company.

And before you start assuming that the games are reworks of the existing titles, they're actually the original ROMs. Capcom will also host a global leaderboard -- you can upload your single-player or co-op multiplayer scores to compete.

Capcom didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the US release or pricing.
