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 need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
