Both the Fightsicks will take you back in time, with the same type of controllers some of you enjoyed at the arcade playing the first Street Fighter and Tekken games. Using genuine Sanwa Denshi arcade component, the unique chassis of the Street Fighter X Tekken Arcade FightStick V.S. allows you to play both as single player, or in a two with the Arcade FightStick V.S. Connector Kit (sold separately) to recreate a two-play arcade presentation. Furthermore, this controller was even nominated for the IGN ‘Best of CES’ award.
