  Not much of a looker, and that price tag seems way high, but otherwise… sweet!

  Based on experience of other similar hardware, I won’t be buying Day 1.

  Mega Man Soccer, of all titles?

  Many of these games are SNES titles but many are or could be arcade, so what’s going on with this exactly?

  Just another thing that’s gonna be running SNES9X and MAME or FBA?

  Looks nice, but playing Mega Man X or Mega Man & Bass with an arcade stick can’t be very good. They should’ve put some more arcade games on it instead.

  I would rather play on my tv. Screens on phones, tvs, and handheld consoles have gotten really good. After ooking at all these beautiful screens this thing is probably going to look like ***** in comparison.

  Neo Geo mini was pretty slick looking. This just looks frumpy.

  Biggest takeaway from this for me is that Mega Man Soccer is a thing apparently, never knew that and now I want to check that out.

  I d like the look of the unit itself, very retro. It’d be nice if they could have swapped out at least one of the SFs for a Darkstalkers.

  I personally wouldn’t get this as I’m not a fan of SF or Mega Man (too hard for me) but would get one if they brought a different set of games to it.

  If that screen doesn’t tilt, viewing angles will be an issue. But looks cool, who would care?

  I think Street Fighter Anthology PS2 is worthier.

  You got 5 great Capcom fighting games in 1 disc (SFA1, SFA2, SFA2 Gold, SFA3, Gem Fighter)

  It’s a cool idea…but impractical in so many ways.

  You have to appreciate Japan for these things though, they wouldn’t happen anywhere else.

  I think the Capcom logo monstruosity (?) had more, and more interesting, games for the same price or less. It was heavily discounted weeks ago, by the way. Still didn’t get it, it’s just too big for my available space.

  You’d think it would be a bit of a no-brainer for Capcom to put the same games on this that they put on their giant arcade stick that was shaped like the Capcom logo. Although after the emulator controversy with that one maybe they’ve had to go with a new and less capable emulator?

  If this had most of the CPS-1 catalogue on it, I’d be very interested. Something convenient for Final Fight, Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, Strider, Area 88, Willow, etc would be pretty cool.

  This is definitely a maybe. Mega Man Power Battle and Fighters and Mega Man Soccer are the highlights for me here. Huge 8″ screen is a plus. I don’t trust that stick, though. Not enough depth in the control panel to convince me that’s not anything but a non-microswitch joystick.

  Im a huge fan of capcom arcade games but this is just disappointing. Where’s stuff like the street fighter alpha games and darkstalkers? I wouldn’t even mind if it had more obscure stuff like armoured warriors or jojo HFTF

  Nonsense. Had it included all the Mega Man collections I would have thought about getting it for half that price, but now I think they’re really pushing the envelope a bit too much with these nostalgic machines.

  C’mon only Street Fighter and Mega Man games, where’s AVP, Cyberbots, Rival Schools, Darkstalkers, Final Fight, Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Merc, Strider, Captain Commando, Bionic Commando, The King of Dragons, Magic Sword, Knights of the Round, etc? Also if you’re gonna include just Street Fighter games, at least give us one entry from SFIII and one from SF Alpha.

  The games are not had but haw about darkstalkers

  How about be more a original and put the first three resident evil games on

  @BulkSlash yep I’d much prefer a little arcade machine like this to have arcade games on it like you said the CPS1 games would be good Pang 3, Final Fight,Captain Commando are CPS1 I think if memory serves.

  Just Mega Man and Street Fighter? A chance to release some rare arcade games and Cap wants to release more MM and SF. I’ll pass, Sega’s Astro City seems like the way to go.

  For anyone interested in this, Sam’s Club in the US is also offering a Capcom cocktail table for $10 less with 12 games. Includes all the pre-SF Alpha SF games + Darkstalkers, 1944, Ghosts N’ Goblins, etc.

  IMO, much better deal for the price even if you lose Puzzle Fighter for the original SF, but I’d say the weakest part of the selection for the cocktail.

  Mega man w a joystick? Heck no! On top of the high price, an 8″ screen is tiny for playing a fighting game w a joystick. It should have all fighting games, or at least arcade ports of capcom games. Hard pass.

  Someone should make us a vertically oriented screen and pack it with vertical shooters. It would work well on a stick and really make it something unique to buy.

  How is this expensive Compared to a Nintendo Game & Watch for 50-70$ with a 2.36-inch screen vs 8 inch!!(ipad mini)? Some Aracadesticks start at a price of 200$ For real, i think with this desgin and a CRT-like monitor, it’s a great deal! And u get 10 games instead of 1 game (Game and Watch). And from a collector perspective, it will be much more rare in 10-20 years than the Nintendo Game & Watch

  Funny how people easily pay 50$ for a G&W with 1!!! 37 year old game on it. But because it’s capcom, they just only wanna pay 20 $ more xD.

  Maybe Nintendo should make a Nintendo Gameboy Micro Mini with 4 games for 150$ for you guys(Like the Game Gear Micro). ( I hope Ninten-don’t read this!! xD)

  No thanks. Tiny selection of games, tiny screen. Costs more than a Switch Lite. They must be out of their minds. This should be 80 dollars, no 210.

  @n0v4

  The Game & Watch has three games (Mario 1, Lost Levels, and Ball), though Ball is simple as they come so I wouldn’t blame you for not counting it.

  But still, it’s not one game.

  At this price it should have included all the best CPS-2 Arcade games.

  CPS-2 were the next-gen arcade back the the days if anyone don’t know.

  Cadillacs & Dinosaurs should ring a bell.

  @Toy_Link I know.. Lost Levels is like a dlc to Mario 1 and Ball… C’mon.. Nintendo did this for show… because it’s a Game and Watch!! I love my Switch.. but i hate how ignorant Nintendo is.

  So for me it’s 1 game from a 2020 Player perspective…. Maybe i will buy the G&W, but the only thing i will play is Mario 1 + DLC.

  Ball Game for 1 minute its nice and nostalgic and then never do it again ;P.

  Even Sega did better… with the Game Gear Micro with 4 games per Game Gear, ofcourse i must admit its a lil bit tiny XD. But u have like 16 games in total… u can choose which Game Gear (games) u want. And dont tell me u buy this thing to play Mario 1 XD… It’s a collector item. accept it… U can play Mario 1 everywhere… even on a browser… with a controller yes

  What a weak line-up of games. It’s basically just two games: Mega Man X and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

  If someone manages to hack it to add more games, it’ll become interesting.

  Surely loses something for not being 2 player when so many good Capcom arcade games are 2 player – maybe there’s a way a USB controller can go in there. Lineup is pretty rubbish though, odd decision!

  For less than this price, you could get a Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro, apply the hylohack (easily findable) and then you’ve got a fabulous games system. Get the MAGIC-NS adaptor and you’ve got a great arcade stick for other systems too!

  That’s a strange list of games. I love the idea of a Capcom mini arcade machine, but I’d need it to have Final Fight, at least. It would also be a good opportunity to bring back the licensed beat-em-ups like Cadillacs and Dinosaurs etc.
