Soulcalibur 5 arcade fight stick announced

Mad Catz is making the official Soulcalibur 5 fight stick.

The Soulcalibur 5 Arcade Fightstick Soul Edition launches worldwide January 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Writing in the Shoryuken forum, Mad Catz's MarkMan offered more detail.

Soulcalibur 5 producer Hisaharu Tago told Mad Catz at E3 2011 he wanted a stick similar to the Super Street Fighter 4 Chun-Li Tournament Edition stick. "We agreed to make something similar; but to make changes/improvements that cater to the fighting game fan and of course the Soulcalibur fan."

The Soul Edition has a translucent body with the artwork of the Soul Edge and Soulcalibur swords tying into the case design. It has a new button layout and a button mapping unique to the game. The stick placement and button layout follows the Namco Noir arcade panel layout, the same as with Tekken 6 official arcade machines.

It uses six stainless steel screws. "We've listened to your feedback and have noted that rusty screws are not appealing."
