If you're looking for a great gift for your fellow video game fan this holiday season, Capcom might have the perfect thing in mind for you. According to Amazon Japan, Capcom will be releasing the Retro Station mini-arcade system next month, which includes numerous classic Street Fighter and Mega Man titles.

While Capcom hasn't officially announced the unit yet, the listing on Amazon Japan has a slated release date of December 1, 2020. At this point in time, it is unclear whether or not the Retro Station will be available in the U.S., but based on how it looks we sure hope it makes its way overseas.

According to Siliconera, the unit measures roughly 13 in x 11 in x 12.5 in. It is expected to weigh about 5 lbs.

The product details also make note of an 8-inch screen and high-quality speakers set to be built in. Though the price is no longer included in the Amazon Japan listing, Siliconera reports that it previously showed a price tag of 21,780 yen (about $210).

Among the 10 games chosen to populate this system, some mainstays that you'd expect to be included made the cut. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo will be available to play on this mini-arcade, and Mega Man fans can look forward to booting up Mega Man X on the unit as well.

More peculiar are choices such as Mega Man Soccer and the Mega Man Power Battle / Fighters series, though it is a nice change of pace after seeing the classic line of Mega Man and Mega Man X games already released in legacy collections in recent times.

Perhaps the coolest aspect of this upcoming mini-arcade, though, is the fact that it is very clearly shaped and modeled after Mega Man's helmet. It boasts the trademark Capcom blue and yellow and what looks to be traditional arcade parts with a six button layout and a ball-topped joystick.

Below is the full list of games set to be included in the Retro Station.

Mega Man Series

• Mega Man The Power Battle
• Mega Man 2 The Power Fighters
• Mega Man X
• Mega Man Soccer
• Mega Man & Bass (Japanese Console Version)

Street Fighter Series
