Mad Catz brings new hardware for Street Fighter V
With Street Fighter V only a week away, fighters from all over the globe are preparing to battle it out on February 16th. Street Fighter V brings PS4 and PC crossplay, so that the console alliance and the PC master race can finally battle it out to see who is better (even though it is entirely based on opinion).
Mad Catz has prepared new hardware for this battle, arming the PS4 users with it once the game releases.
The official Street Fighter V TE2 , TE2+ (white), and TES+ (Shadaloo) boast premium components and button layouts found in genuine Japanese arcade cabinets. The TE2 and TE2+ both have internal access for storage and a removable bezel and clear top panel.
All 3 arcade sticks come with a handy button that lets you disable the start/option, select/share and PS button that will bring unwanted forfeiture if pressed in a tournament.
The TE2 and TE2+ retails for $229.99, and the TES+ for $199.99.
In addition to those three fightsticks, there are the less expensive Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha and Street Fighter V FightPad PRO.
The Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha is a great for getting your feet wet before upgrading to a premium fightstick. This beginner arcade stick is compact in design with similar features found in a pro model.
One special feature is the toggle-able joystick that emulates either the left or right analog stick,or the D-pad.
Start your transition right with the Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha which sells for $79.99.
Last but not least, we have the Street Fighter V FightPad PRO. This gamepad is for those who prefer the feel of a controller but still want the precision of an arcade cabinet.
The Directional pad is custom crafted for fighting games and gives you 8 directions to move in -- it's like an analog stick, but has the precision of a D-pad. The design of this D-pad will give you an advantage over traditional controllers when doing complicated inputs.
Instead of the standard four, there are six buttons on the face of the controller that gives the controller an arcade cabinet feel. A utility switch by the triggers allow the user to customize the buttons when using the shoulder and trigger buttons.
The Street Fighter V FightPad PRO will be available for $59.99.
Every controller, except for the Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha, comes with a built-in touchpad, and all of them are compatible with your favorite fighting games like Injustice: Gods Among Us, Mortal Kombat X, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, and Guilty Gear Xrd-SIGN-.
So whatever your game is, Mad Catz is ready to put you in the fight.
