Capcom promises an authentic experience with the help of two competition class Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT sticks with 8-way GT-Y directional gates and OBSF buttons. The games themselves are all from original CPS1 and CPS2 arcade ROMS, with FB Alpha handling emulation. Scores can be uploaded via onboard WiFi so players can compete on the Worldwide High Score Leaderboard.
