Capcom Announces “Capcom Home Arcade” Retro Gaming Device

Capcom is getting into the retro gaming market just like Nintendo and SEGA recently did with their Classic Edition consoles. But how does a company who is marketing this for arcade games bring that feeling into your home? With their interesting “Home Arcade” machine.

The Capcom “Home Arcade” is essentially a plug and play system, and includes 16 pre-installed games from the CAPCOM CPS1 and CPS2 arcade ROMs with emulation by FB Alpha. What makes it extra nice is that two Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT joysticks with eight-way GT-Y directional gates and OBSF buttons will be included in the release, so two players can use this immediately without having to buy any more accessories. It does appear you will have to share that controller though, and there is no word yet on how wide it actually is.

Players will be able to access a Worldwide High Score Leaderboard via built-in WiFi. The system will connect to televisions via an HDMI cable and to a power supply via USB.

Check out the trailer for the “console” below:

What I am most excited about is the game list, which has some serious heavy hitters on it:

  • 944: 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
  • Mega Man: The Power Battle
  • Progear
  • Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
  • Strider
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II: Turbo

The Capcom Home Arcade system is scheduled for release on October 25, and is available to pre-order in Europe for 229.99 euros, which converts to roughly $260 USD. No word on a US release date yet, but I would not be shocked to see this come around Holiday season 2019.

New Footage Found Of Epic “EVO Moment 37”

Back in 2004, one of the most epic moments in gaming history happened. Before eSports were even remotely considered a serious thing, tournaments like EVO were going on, and at the “Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike tournament” ,Daigo Umehara and Justin Wong faced off in a bout that has gone down in history as one of the biggest things to happen in fighter tournaments.

The clip circulated all over the internet, and was monumental for both competitors. For the first time ever, an alternate video of this was discovered, and you can check it out right here!

Unlike the original, this clip (which was unearthed by EVO’s Mark Julio) is two minutes longer and features the entire bout between Umehara and Wong. It also includes more clear commentary from members of the audience, and really, it’s still amazing to watch.

Check out the new footage below:

If you want to see the original clip, you can check that out under here:

We also recommend checking out this documentary short from Kotaku, which goes much more in-depth about this spectacular moment:

If you don’t get goosebumps watching any of these videos, you should check your pulse and see if you are even still alive.
