Marvel VS. Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds is coming soon. The game already has a fair amount of swag announced. There’s the comic book, t-shirt, console decals, and even some exclusive DLC, if you know what stores to look around at. One rare item has a specific number of only 5,000 iterations, but it’s only notable if you want something exclusive that’s going to be covered up by your sweaty palms.
Kotaku has confirmed that Mad Catz is getting in on the VS. craze. Having recently produced controllers for Tatsunoko VS. Capcom and Street Fighter IV, they’ve announced a Tournament Edition Arcade FightStick. Priced at $159.99, it looks to be coming out alongside the title. Their TE FightStick’s have real Sanwa components and are easily modded, and have honestly helped transform MadCatz’ image in the gamers eyes.
I picked up a standard FightStick with Street Fighter IV, and recently and rather easily modified it to have an octogonal gate (versus the square one standard). I’m fine with the standard issue buttons, but those appear to be easily modded as well.
I’m just not willing to drop 3/5ths of the price of a Nintendo 3DS on a joystick at the moment.
