Round One is over, and judging by the amount of Street Fighter IV sticks and controllers Mad Catz sold, the peripheral company came out on top. Now it’s time for Round Two.
Round 2 of Mad Catz officially licensed Street Fighter IV controllers features the same Tournament Edition FightSticks and FightPads as the first batch, only this time around they look different! The FightStick has had a nice makeover and the pads now features designs based on your favourite fighters, including Bison, Cammy, Guile, Crimson Viper, Sagat, and Zangief.
“Capcom is pleased to continue working alongside Mad Catz to deliver a second wave of high quality FightSticks and FightPads to the Street Fighter community,” said Christian Svensson, vice president business development & strategic planning at Capcom Entertainment, Inc. “Our fan base has responded enthusiastically to the first range of Street Fighter IV controllers and we are dedicated to continue surprising our loyal audience with products which do justice to this highly acclaimed title.”
With all the redesigns and limited editions they released so far of the FightSticks, I’d say Mad Catz is starting to overdo it a bit, but hey — if they sell, sell em!
