Today the Japanese manufacturer Hori announced a PS4 fight stick to be launched together with The King of Fighters XIV on August 25th in Japan.

With the announcement, we get some data about the stick, that includes the newly developed “Hayabusa” (peregrine falcon) buttons. They’re 1.4 mm thinner than conventional buttons shortening the press motion by 0.3 mm.

The controller also includes a touch pad mounted at the back, programmable Options, L1 and L2 buttons, auto fire that can be set at 5, 12 and 20 times per second and more.

It doesn’t include a lightbar, sixaxis support, vibration, motion sensors, speakers or a headphone jack.

It will be sold in Japan for 18,144 yen, and a western release hasn’t been announced yet.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
