Publish date:

Capcom has again teamed up with peripheral maker Mad Catz to produce new licensed FightSticks and FightPads for the latest in the Street Fighter Series.

According to the companies, the new line of arcade-style input devices will arrive in time for Street Fighter V’s spring 2016 launch on PC and PS4.

Mad Catz will manufacture FightPads, FightSticks and Tournament Edition FightSticks - though we’ll have to wait and see what they look like, as no images of the peripherals have been released as of yet.

Mad Catz has also signed a three-year deal to be featured as a “Premier Sponsor” of the Capcom Pro Tour, with Capcom agreeing to make it the exclusive controller sponsor for the eSports tour of events.
