I’ll keep this thread updated with all details of this stick as it’s released including links to mods etc once they happen

Fightstick Alpha Case (New/Original Design)
=6 button Vewlix design (Prototype looks like it has a slightly larger gap between LP/LK buttons and MP/MK buttons)
=Unlikely to have any future plexi option due to case design (No where to screw in plexi and curved base front)
=Has some type of padding (Specifics unknown)
=Does not appear to have feet in stock photo (Unknown)
=Unknown if cable is removable
Finished mods from community-

I won’t make too many assumptions, but it looks like a budget stick. (EDIT- It is)
I believe we need more budget sticks on the market to get more new fighting game players familiar with using arcade sticks at a reasonable cost.
The base looks a bit thin by the photo, so I’m unsure if a JLF shaft would clear that. (EDIT- Likely will be high enough to swap joysticks, mentioned mod friendly by MarkMan on Twitter)
May not be Sanwa parts to keep costs low.
It’s cooler (6 button) instead of dick (8 button) which is BADASS (This sentence is an SRK Tech Talk inside joke. Don’t take it personally)
