Wireless Wii FightStick announced for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

MadCatz to release licenced wireless FightStick peripheral for Nintento Wii

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is coming to North American on January 26th, and to commemorate the release (and provide Wii owners with a competent control scheme) MadCatz has announced their latest licensed FightStick peripheral, the first for the Nintendo Wii.

The stick is expected to debut at CES 2010 in Las Vegas this week and functions almost identically to its PS3 and Xbox 360 brethren. In addition to standard features like the dual-speed turbo function, eight-button arcade configurations and an integrated D-Pad the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Arcade FightStick will also be the first wireless FightStick (it plugs into the WiiMote.) Other Wii-specific additions include a locking switch, Wii Home button, and stick switch that alternates between right- or left-sided playing styles.

Of course, the new FightStick isn't intended solely for Tatsunoko players and will be sold separately from the game. "Many Wii owners are already enjoying Capcom fighting games via the Virtual Console facility," said Capcom VP of Business Development & Strategic Planning Christian Svensson. "With the launch of Tatsunoko VS. Capcom, we thought it important to give our fan base the opportunity to play with the Arcade FightStick."

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
