Continuing their latest trend in proving they’re a company worth buying from, Mad Catz has announced officially that they’re releasing a Tournament Edition Fight Stick for Marvel vs Capcom 3. If you’re familiar with the previous TE sticks such as Street Fighter IV and BlazBlue editions, then you’re familiar with what’s being offered here. Sanwa parts, 30mm buttons, turbo control, hide-away cable and of course, limited numbers.
The first run of the Marvel vs Capcom 3 stick will be a limited run of 5,000 units and should begin shipping on February 15th so they’ll be in your hands in time to play the game. Among other places, they’ll be available at the Mad Catz webstore.
I own the first run of the SFIV TE Fight Stick, and it’s absolutely amazing. If you’re remotely serious about fighting games you definitely want one of these. You DEFINITELY want to Pre-Order this, otherwise expect to pay triple the unannounced price when they start showing up on eBay.
