Dedicated fighting game fanatics may recall just a few days ago when Capcom’s Japanese blog teased that a potential Street Fighter IV sequel announcement could be coming in the near future. Flash forward to this morning, when Capcom and Mad Catz officially announced sequels to… their Street Fighter IV-branded controllers?
Yeah, you read that right; new versions of Mad Catz’ ever-popular Street Fighter IV tournament arcade sticks and six-button gamepads are on the way. The Street Fighter IV “Round 2” FightStick and FightPad are both made from the same premium components as their predecessors, only now the FightStick features a slick, monochromatic paint job, and the FightPads are plastered with official artwork depicting your choice of either M. Bison, Guile, Zangief, C. Viper, Cammy, or Sagat.
Once again, these premium controllers come at a premium cost: $149.99 for the FightStick and $39.99 apiece for each of the FightPads. They should be available sometime early in the fall of this year.
I already have a Ken and a Blanka one, and a TE fightstick but a Cammy fightpad is just too good to pass up. :wgrin:
