After teasing us
with half an image last night, Mad Catz and Capcom have announced a new "Tournament Edition" arcade stick is in development, branded with new art featuring Super Street Fighter IV
. The stick will be made available in two flavors (check them out below!) for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Alongside the "Tournament Edition S" sticks, Mad Catz "anticipates" releasing four new FightPads for consoles, branded with new art. Considering the supply and demand
issues the original batch of controllers saw, we "anticipate" Mad Catz will flood the market with the new batch of peripherals.
recently pulled Super Street Fighter IV
from its Q1 release window
; however, we can only presume the controllers will be made available within the same time frame as the game itself. When we pried a Mad Catz
rep for a release window on the new controllers they would only confirm it's slated for a release this spring. Hopefully that means we'll get our hands on both items in time to shield us from the April showers.
