THQ and Mad Catz have teamed up to bring us the WWE All Stars Arcade BrawlStick and BrawlPad controllers. These licensed controllers are expected to be released the same time as WWE All Stars March 29, 2011 in North America and April 1, 2011 throughout Europe. Now don’t get me wrong WWE All Stars is set to have the greatest line-up compared to any wrestling game out there, but I just don’t know if I would drop the money on one of these fine products. If you missed the post the other day showing us the WWE All Stars Signature Pictures go take a look and see if your favorite WWE All Star Wrestler is there. Now for the description of the BrawlStick and the BrawlPad.

In addition, Start and Select/Back Buttons will be located on the back of the BrawlStick, minimizing the risk of accidental interruptions.
