Capcom might be working on a new mini retro arcade system, according to Amazon’s Japan website. The so-called “Retro Station” was briefly listed on through Capcom’s official merchant channel with specs and photos of the console itself. 

As you can see, the product is a mini arcade system that includes an old-school-looking CRT monitor. From the side, the console also looks a bit like Mega Man, one of Capcom’s most famous video game characters. 


According to the specs, the hardware measures 12.5 by 13 by 11 inches (HWD), making it small enough to carry in your hands. The monitor itself is 8 inches, and features two audio speakers underneath.

The Retro Station will feature 10 games, five from the Mega Man saga, and another five from the company’s famed Street Fighter II series. Unfortunately, it looks like the system is only designed for a single-player experience, given that it only has one joystick.

The listing says the product will be released on Dec. 1. But by Tuesday, after Twitter users and media outlets began reporting on the product, the listing gone.

We reached out to Capcom for comment, and will update the story if we hear back. But the product may be a follow-up to its previous stab at reviving the retro arcade experience.
