The Nintendo Switch has amassed a great selection of fighting games in its short lifespan, including the wonderful Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which will bring a smile to any retrogaming brawlers face.
Of course, if you want to be a fighting champion, then trying to win battles online with Joy-Con is a fool's errand. You need a proper arcade stick, and HORI has partnered with Capcom to bring a budget option for Switch gamers, along with a full-fat (and very expensive) option.
Fan of classic Street Fighter brawlers Ryu and Chun-Li will need deep pockets as the Real Arcade Pro fight sticks featuring their designs will set you back a whopping $159.99. There is also a retro-styled "classic" version which you might fancy too. These tournament-ready steel-based arcade sticks feature HORI original Hayabusa parts designed for extreme speed and accuracy. The 10-foot USB cable hides away in an ample storage compartment so you can easily take your skills on the road.
If you don't fancy spending quite that much, then the Fighting Stick Mini might be more your speed, priced at $59.99. These designs have a bold look and come in Ryu and Ken, or Chun-Li and Cammy flavours. This arcade stick features a full 8-button layout and a proper micro-switch-activated joystick, yet is small enough (approximately 8” x 6”) to easily store and transport. This wired controller features a long cable, a Share button, and other convenient functions.
Both of these lovely variations of arcade sticks will be available on 15th October, let us know if you plan to pick one up with a comment below.
