Capcom teased us with allusions to a sequel for Street Fighter IV, but shockingly, it doesn’t take the form of another videogame. It officially takes the form of a controller? I guess they ran out of syntax combinations of using “Hyper” and “Turbo.”
That’s right, MadCatz’s popular tournament style arcade sticks and six button gamepads are being called “Round 2″ and will be coming to a store near you. The controllers are essentially identical to their predecessors, but now they come with an assortment of graphics. The joysticks will feature a “slick, monochromatic paint job,” and the gameapads will feature some of the game’s more popular characters: M.Bison, C. Viper and Cammy to name a few.
The Mad Catz FightStick and gamepad will set you back $149.99 and $39.99 respectively. To be perfectly honest, can you really put a price on a piece of videogaming history?
