Nintendo has set up an incredible business with the reissues of their mini consoles. The strategy was then replicated by Sega and Sony, but soon Capcom will also get on the bandwagon of the old-school consoles. It will be called Capcom Arcade, and will allow you to play the arcade classics of the 80s and 90s gaming rooms on your living room TV.
It’s a plug-and-play game system, which will include 16 games. The console will be in the shape of the Capcom logo, and will connect to the TV via an HDMI cable, powered by a simple USB cable. It can also be connected to Wi-Fi, an element that other mini-consoles do not have. Capcom says that the main use of Wi-Fi is related to global online rankings.
The Capcom Arcade console comes with two controllers as standard, allowing for a local, bar-style multiplayer experience. The 16 bundled games include super titles known to gaming enthusiasts of the time, including Captain Commando, Fighters Eco, Mega Man: The Power Battle, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, and more, as also reported by Ubergizmo.
Capcom Arcade will be available from October 25 at 229 euros. More information on the possible availability of the console in Europe, and in Italy will be revealed later.
