PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale supports arcade sticks

Throw command is different when using a stick.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale supports arcade sticks, developer SuperBot Entertainment has announced.

The PlayStation exclusive brawler includes controller configuration support for "all popular" arcade stick peripherals, read an update on the PSASBR Facebook page. We imagine this includes Mad Catz's range of fight sticks.

"Fans of the fighting game genre can use their favourite arcade-style controller to play Battle Royale to full effect," SuperBot said. "Every attack, combo, and strategy that can be performed on the DualShock 3 controller is seamlessly mapped to arcade button layouts.

"By default, nearly all DualShock 3 controller commands are assigned to the same buttons on an arcade stick. The joystick takes care of the character's movement and combines with the Square, Triangle, and Circle buttons to perform the full range of 24 unique attacks.

"In fact, joystick inputs behave exactly the same as DualShock 3 D-pad inputs would, so arcade stick functionality is natively supported in PlayStation All-Stars."

The only exception to this is the throw command. On the DualShock throws are triggered with the right stick. On an arcade stick throws are performed with "an easy button combination" that SuperBot says is similar to many traditional fighting games. Forward and punch up close, perhaps.
