Episode Summary 

Last month we learned about Capcom, the video game company who wanted to get into the pinball industry and ride wave of popularity, just like Data East! It didn’t go well. 

Even after Capcom disappeared, the lure of what could have been remained. That’s when we stumble upon a crazy collector and dreamer who ruined himself. Join us this month while we discover what happened to Capcom’s assets, tooling and making new parts vs. selling existing parts, more lawsuits, being a terrible business person or being a great guy, and a second crash and burn.
