Update: We’ve been tipped off by an anonymous source that Capcom’s big reveal – as reported below – isn’t coming to Switch, because it’s not coming to any console. Instead, it will be a two-player arcade stick packed with classic Capcom arcade games that plugs directly into your TV. We’ve been told that the sticks and buttons will be full-sized affairs; a close match to the interface used on original arcade cabinets. We’ve heard that the unit will be a premium affair, with a retail price that could be as high as £200.
We’ll continue to update this story as we get more information.
Original Story: Not so long ago, Capcom surprised everyone with its Beat ‘Em Up Bundle, a selection of famous scrolling fighting titles which included Final Fight and Knights of the Round. Now, it would appear that the company is following this collection up with a second compilation, this time focused on a broader range of titles.
Capcom has released a trailer which shows a series of arcade titles reflected in the controls of a coin-op cabinet. From the footage, we can make out Darkstalkers, a one-on-one fighter in the same style as Street Fighter II (which is also included in this trailer). There’s also Aliens vs. Predator and Progear, two titles that have never seen the light of day outside of arcades, and Giga Wing, a shooter which was also ported to the Dreamcast.
Capcom’s teasing an announcement tomorrow at 3PM, UK time.
