As is the case with most major fighting game releases these days, Dead or Alive 5 is getting its own custom arcade sticks. Made by Hori, the sticks are based on the same case as their Soul Calibur V and Gundam Extreme Vs arcade sticks. The sticks are scheduled to be released on September 27 in Japan for ￥14,801, which is around $185 in US currency. Amazon Japan has pre-order pages up for the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 versions. No word yet from Hori whether these will be released in the US as well.
Not sure I wanna spend near $200 on a fight stick but... damn that thing looks really cool and I've never played DOA with a stick so I'd like to see how much better (or worse) I'd become playing with one. I know buying the MK fight stick helped with MK tons. Heres to hoping we get a release!
