Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am the biggest half behind this website and love to write about my deep love for fighting games, (J)RPG's and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and absolutely love pizza.
A while back Mad Catz announced that they would be partnering with Capcom to launch a whole new line of FightPads and Sticks for SFV. During PAX 2 of these beauties were unveiled adn shared by MarkMan.
Mad Catz community manager Mark “MarkMan” Julio has shared following images on twitter.
The FighStick ALPHA looks to be a smaller, more compact take on the more recent arcade sticks. Unlike most fight sticks, the ALPHA has only 6 buttons on the face, with the remaining buttons bumped off to the control panel. The ALPHA being a bit smaller could be a perfect fit for those who think the TE2 is too big for their needs.
The FightPad PRO, features a touchpad and 2 analog sticks which is a first for the Mad Catz FightPad range. As with all other FightPads the 6 most important buttons for Street Fighter and most other fighting games are featured on the front of the pad. The FightPad PRO looks to be available in 4 colors ; Red, Whit, Blue and Black and has the SFV logo on it.
Both the Pad and the Stick will be supported on the Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 and will offer the fighting game enthousiast like me a better way to play the games we love.
More information is supposed to be coming soon, once more information is available we will let you know.
