The Capcom Home Arcade is clearly for unconditional fans of Capcom, and its price tag is quite high. Nevertheless, as commented by its CEO, Capcom is currently experiencing a renaissance, with the critical and financial successes of Monster Hunter World, Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5. As such, it’s not surprising to see the company try its hand at the “mini” consoles business.
