Here comes a new challenger! Capcom teases arcade-related announcement


When I was growing up, I spent an inordinate amount of time in arcades, hunting for new games to play and new people to beat at Street Fighter II.


In the 80s and early 90s, one developer stood out to me as one I could count on to deliver games I’d love: Capcom.


It’s why I’m so happy that the company is back on track, delivering an abundance of impressive hits now, decades later.


Yesterday, Capcom teased something new was on the way, saying just that “A new challenger appears” and that there’d be an announcement coming today.


The teaser shows a series of arcade games reflected on a coin-op cabinet’s buttons.


In the reflections, there are some games that are easy to make out, like Darkstalkers, Street Fighter II (In one of its myriad guises) and a few surprises – because they’re arcade games that have never been released on home systems: Aliens vs Predator and shoot-em-up Progear.
