Hori – NEW Soul Calibur 5 Stick and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue Stick!

by Rip

Wow, did not expect to see this coming. When MadCatz announced their Soul Calibur 5 stick I assumed it was an exclusive license, however Hori has pulled out a Soul Calibur 5 stick of their own. Not only that, but its based on a completely new design! I’m VERY interested in seeing what Hori decided to do with this new design. Separately, with Hori recently announcing the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 fight stick based off their V3SA design I thought that surely they would stick with that design going forward. But surprise, surprise, they pull out a stick for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue based on the old Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 design!

Does TTT2 Prologue stick come with hori buttons again or sanwa? Looks like hori, but you never can be 100% sure.

HRAP3 design IMO is far far superior to the V3 design. I've tried the V3 it's so cramped. I have no idea why they put the stick so close to the buttons. I like resting my thumb in the space between but with the V3 it just interrupts my right hand. There's so much space on the arcade stick, I don't know why they don't bother using it. I'm glad Hori kept the HRAP3 layout. I might even invest in it.
