Ahead of the Capcom Home Arcade release date reviews have been coming in for the system.

Here’s some of the verdicts on the Capcom Home Arcade from critics…

Capcom Home Arcade review – Nintendo Life: “The Capcom Home Arcade has had us glued to our TV for longer than we’d care to admit (Luigi’s Mansion 3 has gone largely untouched since it arrived, we’re ashamed to say).

“It’s solidly built, the 16 game library showcases some real gems from Capcom’s history and we love the fact that the dual-controls practically beg you to rope a second player in whenever possible.

“It’s that social aspect of the arcade past which this device does such a fine job of recreating, and when you consider that two of the included games have never been seen in the home before (at least not officially, anyway), then it becomes clear that while the Capcom Home Arcade is very much a niche proposition, the small sector of the market it’s aimed at will absolutely lap it up.”

Capcom Home Arcade review – The Guardian – 4/5: “The £200 price tag remains high, but then a two-player arcade stick of this quality with no preloaded games could cost close to that amount, and securing an arcade original of just one of the featured titles would cost you much more than a couple of hundred pounds.

“A few nights with good friends, a big TV and several richly preserved arcade classics from the 1980s and 90s may well be worth the asking price.”
