by Rip

Over at their Facebook page Hori has revealed images of their Tekken Tag Tournament 2 stick. Images of this stick first showed up at Amazon for Hori Japan, but in the past it was not uncommon for Hori Japan to have different stick art / branding. It looks like the art is now confirmed and that the body will be that of the Soul Calibur 5 stick. Check out the screens below.

MadCatz CES Announcements: New Street Fighter X Tekken FightStick PRO & FightStick V.S.

by Rip

At CES MadCatz unveiled their newest fight sticks, the Street Fighter x Tekken Fightstick PRO and the Street Fighter x Tekken Fightstick V.S. The Fightstick PRO is a new take on the original Street Fighter x Tekken stick they released, except this time in black. Not sure if there are any other changes, but I’m definitely liking the black body instead of the original red one. The Fightstick PRO also comes in two separate artwork choices; Cross and Line.

The new V.S. stick is interesting as it allows you to connect two of them side-by-side with the purchase of a connector kit. I don’t know if this will catch on for home use, but it seems like it may have some potential for people who build their own arcade cabinets. With Street Fighter x Tekken featuring some cool co-op gameplay elements it definitely fits for the game though. Always good to see companies trying something new with their products.
