In Depth Look At The Mortal Kombat Fight Stick


PDP released a new video that goes in depth with the Mortal Kombat Fight Stick for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It looks absolutely fantastic.

The Mortal Kombat Fight Stick by PDP is as authentic as it gets. It’s made out of the same material used in arcade cabinets and includes genuine Suzo-Happ parts. Unlike the FightSticks from Mad Catz, the buttons for the MK stick are concave instead of convex. You’ll also notice that it uses a bat top instead of a ball top. This is as close as you’ll get to having an American style arcade cabinet without actually owning one.

It’s worth mentioning that this Fight Stick was clearly designed specifically for Mortal Kombat. It features the same klassic button layout from the arcades. It’s not going to be easy playing a game like Street Fighter.

Check out the video below to see all the toasty details.

The Tournament Edition of Mortal Kombat, which includes a copy of the game and the Fight Stick, will be available in limited quantities for the Xbox 360 and PS3 for $149.99. Alternately, you can purchase a stand alone Fight Stick for the Xbox 360 through PDP’s website for $129.99. Unfortunately, there is no word on a European release.

  1. Looks nice!

    Is it American made by any chance!?

    • Yup. All the parts are American made. :D

  2. Is it available in EU?

  3. Any idea on price. It’s blatantly gonna be expensive and with a layout that really only supports MK, that’s gonna make it hard to justify a purchase

      did you read the article?

      • Actually, I stealth edited that in after I woke up once I realized I didn’t include that info. I should have made that clear.

        sorry ;(

      • I didn’t think that was there earlier, stealth edit FSC (for severe confusion). ;)

    • I await the apology :)

  4. That fighting stick looks really nice, but I still can’t see that the new mortal combat will be a hit. I think its been too long between the previous game and this one to really “hit” home

    • Why wouldn’t it be? It looks amazing.

  5. That’s a lovely piece of kit. Think I’ll stick with just the disc though. Good video, noticeably patriotic too, not too many British videos with the same sense of patriotism.

  6. Nice that, still won’t make me any better at the game.

  7. That is the type of stick I would get but if it’s just for MK only then that puts me off with other fighting games. I still have SFIV Fighting stick.
