Authentic Japanese-style Joystick & Buttons
This competition-ready SOUL Edition FightStick uses high-quality Sanwa parts, the very same parts that are found in Japanese arcade cabinets. The Sanwa JLF is the standard in high-quality, tournament-grade FightSticks.
8-Button Layout with Multi-Speed Turbo Functionality
Eight Sanwa action buttons help ensure easy access to every strike, kick, guard and combo. Multi-speed Turbo functionality gives two distinct turbo speeds that can be mapped to any one of the action buttons on the FightStick, and these Turbo settings can be monitored on the control panel, and even disabled for tournament play.
Premium-Quality Components with Genuine Namco Noir Layout
The eight-button Namco Noir layout offers a comfortable, ergonomic control scheme, reminiscent of SEGA's classic Astro City configuration. Sanwa OBSF-30 action buttons respond with pinpoint accuracy and can withstand repeated use.
Controller Lock/Unlock Switch
A lock switch on the control panel provides the ability to lock out the use of Turbo functionality and prevents use of the PS button. No more accidental pauses or automatic forfeitures in key moments during tournament matches!
3-Way Joystick Switch
A useful three-way switch provides the ability to navigate in-game menus and play games from other genres, including downloadable titles on the PlayStation Network. Easily switch between functionality for the left analog stick, right analog stick, or the default D-Pad setting.

Exclusive Translucent Casing with Blade-Inspired EDGE Bezel and Stainless Steel Screws
With a unique bezel which mimics the weapons used in SOULCALIBUR V, there's no mistaking this FightStick for any other. The translucent casing provides a glimpse into the controller's inner workings, and the stainless steel screws used on the control panel reinforce the sword-themed appearance while retaining their lustrous finish.
Heavy Metal Base
This is no cheap plastic toy; the durable metal base increases the FightStick's weight for a solid, secure feel when draining your foe's life bar. Easily unscrew the rubber feet to securely mount the FightStick to a table or other solid surface.

13 FT USB Cable with Internal Storage
A 13-foot-long controller cable ensures maximum comfort no matter what your gaming setup is. Stash the cable in the internal storage compartment to keep your gaming weapon sleek and ready for travel.
Connects to the Console via Lag-Free USB
Proven in and out of tournament play at the highest levels, the best players from around the globe prefer the FightStick's high-quality wired USB connection over wireless controllers. From World Champion, Daigo “The Beast” Umehara of Team Mad Catz, to many of the top eight players from the EVOLUTION world finals, the Arcade FightStick: SOUL Edition is the obvious choice for casual and competitive gamers alike.
