I work with arcade sticks. Something I really like. One of the projects I worked on awhile ago was the design of the award winning Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2, the successor of the original Tournament Edition FightStick that I worked on back in 2008. The TE2 was first introduced with Killer Instinct on Xbox One but now we (at Mad Catz) are releasing it for other consoles & tying it into other games. Click below for a mini-gallery of all our TE2 FightSticks that are just about to release!
UPDATE: The Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold Arcade FightStick TE2 will be released in North America as well! Make sure you check out all the info here.
The sequel to Persona 4 Arena is finally hitting consoles in Japan! Later this week with Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold will make it’s debut alongside Mad Catz’s latest arcade stick, in TE2 form! Check out this preview video of the Persona 4 – The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold Arcade FightStick TE2 for PlayStation 3 & PlayStation 4! The stick is currently slated for a Japan release only however Mad Catz is keen to release it in other regions very soon as well.
Madonna anyone? Okay never mind, I think I’m too old. Anyways like a prayer… More work-related stuff coming that was announced by our partners at ATLUS recently! The Persona 4 – The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold Arcade FightStick TE2 by Mad Catz is on it’s way to Japan (yes, Japan only for now)! This marks our (Mad Catz) first time working with ATLUS to collaborate on an official arcade stick release. I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been a fan of the Persona series since the original Revelations: Persona game on the original PlayStation. With how much the game has grown/changed (Persona 3 to Persona 4, notably) from an RPG to now a full fledged fighting game series, I am so happy that the series and it’s fanbase has really taken off to bigger and better things! I love Persona and fighting games, how could this go wrong? It didn’t. 🙂 Check the announcement blog post from the official Persona site below!
