This is the official Killer Instinct arcade stick

Forward, back, forward.

Xbox One exclusive Killer Instinct is a fighting game and so it has an official arcade stick. And here it is.

Fighting stick maker MadCatz has worked with Microsoft and developer Double Helix Games to create the Killer Instinct Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 for Xbox One. It's out at launch on 22nd November.

As you can see from the pictures above, the fight stick features Jago and co and is made from Sanwa Denshi parts (the parts used in Japanese arcade cabinets) with classic eight-button Vewlix-style layout.

You can also open up the fight stick to access the inner storage and components. It comes with a screwdriver tool so you can customise.

The video, below, goes into more detail. It's available to pre-order in the US now for $199.99. You can pre-order in the UK from the GameShark Store soon.
