The Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Premium VLX Kuro Fighting Stick has been released in the North American region. If you are interested, you can purchase the arcade stick (which is compatible with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles) with this link.
The latest product from Hori has been officially licensed by Taito as well as American branch of Sony Computer Entertainment. It is a perfect replica of the Velix arcade cabinet found in the arcade machines in Japan. Of course, it will also come with the trademarked Hayabusa lever and Kuro buttons found in the other Hori sticks. The other notable features include a touch pad, programmable functions in addition to easy access to the internals (so that you can store tools and modify the parts).
If you haven’t heard already, Sony is teaming up with Capcom for the release of the upcoming Street Fighter V. The same two companies also collaborated on the PSN release of Ultra Street Fighter IV for the PlayStation 4.
If you are looking for an arcade stick to play the Street Fighter games on Sony’s current gen console (as well as other fighting games such as Guilty Gear Xrd Sign and Mortal Kombat X), you should take a look at the newly available Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Premium VLX Kuro Fighting Stick.
