Fans of 300 hit combos are in luck, as Mad Catz announced today that the unique Killer Instinct Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 is coming out exclusively for the Xbox One, Holiday 2013. The FightStick was first shown and demonstrated at E3 this year during a demonstration of the Xbox One exclusive Killer Instinct (which is being developed by Microsoft Studios and Double Helix Games and NOT original developers Rare, *sobs*), and will look like the picture shown below, except with official Killer Instinct artwork and button mapping tailored specifically for the game.
President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Darren Richardson, lavished praise on the Xbox One and is super pumped about the FightStick, saying:
“E3 greeted us with a positive reaction to our Tournament Edition 2 FightStick and we’re pleased that the controller will provide passionate fans of Killer Instinct with an even richer gaming experience. We earlier commented how the enhanced performance of the Xbox One opens up additional scope for innovation and believe that the Killer Instinct Tournament Edition 2 FightStick perfectly illustrates our commitment to the next generation of entertainment.”
This new FightStick promises great levels of customization, quality, and is being designed with the fighting game community in mind, who are a ravenous, passionate group of gamers not easily satisfied, so I wish Mad Catz the best of luck! Just announce B. Orchid and I’ll be ready to try your game out, Double Helix.
Expect the FightStick and Killer Instinct this holiday season. For now, here is some footage of the stick and title in action, complete with comments joking about rape, because hey, that’s totally alright to say and laugh about, guys (*shakes head in disbelief*).
