So it seems it is a large arcade stick with roms, rather than a consoke port.   :displeased:

It's the ROM running on Final Burn Alpha in a massive Sanwa stick:

I actually like the look of this, and the selection of games is great. Is final burn alpha any good?

According to the official site, this only has the USA version of Progear, which is a bummer. But I suspect it will be hacked soon after release, so it shouldn't be an issue to put the JPN ROM on there.

I don't know much about emulation but I think it's "OK" and was chosen because of it's not very demanding of hardware.

Definitely wait for it to be hacked. There are no doubt cheaper, more accurate and more ergonomic ways to get Progear emulated on your rig.

It wouldn't surprise me if Cave knew nothing about this.

If you have a dedicated pc w/ AMD gpu and a CRT yes (can be cheaper), or a FreeSync/G-Sync setup (well, depends)

Anyway neither FBA nor MAME emulate CPS hardwares perfectly, even running on the ideal emu config it's roughly like 90% accurate (bc of the eternal lack of proper wait states simulation)

Not bad at all though, good enough for me tbh.
