Capcom is teasing a “special announcement” for April 16 at 9:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET / 3:00 p.m. GMT with a new video titled, “Here Comes a New Challenger.”
The 24-second clip shows reflections of a fighting game over an arcade controller, including Giga Wing, Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, Street Fighter 2, Progear, and Alien vs. Predator. (Alien vs. Predator is confirmed via the copyright text at the end of the clip, which reads “Alien, Predator, and Alien vs. Predator are TM & (C) 2019 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.”)
Watch the video below.
Update 11:55 a.m.: According to a Nintendo Life report citing an “anonymous source,” this announcement is for a plug-and-play two-player arcade stick packed with classic Capcom arcade games. It is reportedly a full-sized device with a close match to the interface used on original arcade cabinets, and will retail as high as £200. It should be noted that this should be taken as nothing more than a rumor until an official announcement is made.
