FightPad PRO’s eight-way D-Pad is custom-crafted for fighting games. Intricate motions are easier to perform compared to standard D-Pads. This provides a distinct advantage over traditional controllers and helps you hurl fireballs with ease. Hadoken!
For the uninformed, the Mad Catz Street Fighter V FightPad Pro also comes with a left analog stick in addition to L2 and R2 triggers. Both of these aren’t normally found in a controller dedicated to fighting games.
The FightPad Pro should arrive on the same day as the launch of Street Fighter V, which is coming out on February 16 in 2016. In addition to the Mad Catz Store, you can preorder the controller with this Amazon link.
The fifth main installment of the series is launching with 16 characters with more coming via downloadable content. The DLC can be earned with in-game currency or by using your real money.
