Capcom Will Save Your Quarters with the Home Arcade Stick

Get ready to recall Friday nights standing in front of an arcade cabinet, shelling out coins and pounding buttons in the hopes of making it to the next level. Capcom announced a new mini arcade system that comes loaded with your favourite arcade games. The Capcom Home Arcade is a plug-and-play mini console that plugs directly into your TV.

The arcade comes with two full-size premium Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT sticks and button configurations already built in. The body of the arcade is shaped to match Capcom’s signature logo. It comes loaded with 16 popular arcade games and uses an emulator to mimic the hardware of the original arcade cabinets.
