Today, the Capcom UK Twitter account posted a video showing various arcade games reflected in the plastic of an arcade stick. We see classics such as Darkstalkers, Street Fighter II, Alien vs. Predator, Progear, and Giga Wing. The video says “A NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHES” and promised an announcement tomorrow at 3 p.m. UK time.
Well, according to Nintendo Life, who received an anonymous tip, the announcement will be a plug-and-play arcade stick system loaded with retro Capcom games, similar to the NES Classic. The Nintendo Life report also claims it will run at a premium, selling for £200, which, for a two-player arcade stick system with good hardware, would make sense.
A new challenger appears.
Tune in for a special announcement tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/FHuzUIuuKa

Take this rumor with a grain of salt, but the longing shots of buttons and sticks give it some credence. We will find out for sure what Capcom has in store tomorrow at 7 a.m. PT/9 a.m. ET.
