The new game console " RETRO STATION " containing Capcom's "Rockman" series and "Street Fighter" series will be released in March 2021. Designed, manufactured and sold by TRON, which has been licensed by Capcom, it will be sold by Toyaku. The price is 19,800 yen (excluding tax). We have started accepting reservations from December 25th. The exterior design inspiration for RETRO STATION comes from Rockman and the CRT display. It is a fusion of Capcom's theme color and LOGO design. It features an 8-inch 4: 3 LCD display, customized joysticks and buttons, and two acoustic system-level deep bass speakers. You can also enjoy nostalgic game music while playing classic games. 10 titles are pre-installed on the main unit, and the original soundtrack of some game titles is also built-in. As a peripheral device, the arcade stick "RETRO STATION FIGHT STICK" is sold separately. A gameplay that allows up to two players at the same time on the same host. The price is 6280 yen (excluding tax). In addition, "RETRO STATION PVP DONGLE" will be released, which allows you to wirelessly connect two RETRO STATIONs and play against each other. The price is 3580 yen (excluding tax).

So, er... The Fight Stick is their solution to letting you play something like Street Fighter in 2-player mode without having to buy a second Retro Station device? But if you have a second Retro Station device you can play over wireless? It's a nice compromise, but it still seems like a kind of bonkers project. :D

Spark from the MEGA MAN. The RETRO STATION comes from an elegant design which will recall you the old days and the best memory with MEGA MAN and STREET FIGHTER. With the very MEGA MAN style out-looking, the RETRO STATION has special customized full-size joystick and buttons in a proper overall size, and a high quality 8 inch 4:3 LCD display, 1024*768 resolution, to provide you better user experience for retro games. Meanwhile, RETRO STAION can also output HD quality video to a big screen via HDMI interface.

 

The RETRO STATION has a special sound cavity design, and dual 10W super bass speakers to provide you high quality game audio effect. You can enjoy some built-in game OST with this MEGA MAN sound system.
