Hori Releasing Wii U Arcade Stick In The UK This December

Not the prettiest, but will do the job

Last week it was revealed that Hori is releasing a Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition fight stick in Japan, alongside the Wii U's launch on 8th December. We were hoping that this would be available in the West, and today Nintendo Gamer confirmed that one will indeed be making its way to the UK; but sadly not as fancy as the one our pals in Japan will own.

A representative for Hori told Nintendo Gamer that there were no plans to bring the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 version to the UK, but a fight stick would become available for Wii U this year:

At present we do not have plans to release this product in the UK, but we can confirm that there will be a Wii U fighting stick available, the Fighting Stick NW. The SRP will be set at £59.99.

On another note, Hori will also be releasing this officially licensed Mario Skin and Filter Set, for those of you that wish to dress up your Wii U GamePad and Wii Remotes. The set costs £12.99 and is available for pre-order now.

Both the Fighting Stick NW and Mario Skin and Filter Set are released on 10th December. Let us know if you plan on picking either of these up.
