Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha compared to the Hori Fighting Stick Mini

Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha 2

Mark Julio has compared the Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha, which is available for preorder with this link on Amazon, with the Hori Fighting Stick Mini. Mad Catz’s community and sponsor manager first stated that his company’s product is a little bigger when compared to Hori’s stick. He also believes that the Alpha features an actual arcade layout in terms of size and feel, which makes it more accessible to him. You can find his comments about the comparison from Twitter below:

In related news, Mark Julio also confirmed that the Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha is going to be “mod friendly.” With that said, it won’t be as easy as the Tournament Edition sticks when it comes to modifying. He also said that the Alpha has been engineered so that it won’t easily slip off your lap and/or desk:

The Arcade FightStick Alpha will be released on the same day as the Street Fighter V videogame, which is slated to arrive early next year on the 16th of February.

The above-mentioned Hori Fighting Stick Mini is also getting a new iteration in the near future. The Fighting Stick Mini 4 is expected to come out in North America later this year on the 14th of December. If you are interested, you can check out Hori’s petite fighting stick with this page.
