Lab Zero Games has today announced that the upcoming PS4 version of their fighter Skullgirls Encore will implement support for various PS3 arcade sticks.
The news is significant in the light of various PS4 games failing to support PS3 peripherals. The driver that the game will use to pull off this backwards compatibility is still in development, and Lab Zero will be conducting thorough testing to ensure compatibility with the widest amount of arcade sticks, while also gathering public feedback from play tests at events.
Finally, once the the driver is finished, Lab Zero Games will make it free to use for other developers, which could result in more PS4 fighters with support for PS3 fight sticks. Skullgirls Encore is due on PS4 and PS Vita next year.
