Battle Royale Will Support "All Popular Arcade Stick Peripherals"
For some old-school gamers, it just isn't a fighting game if you can't use an arcade stick.
And although PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale isn't exactly your quintessential hardcore fighter, developer SuperBot Entertainment will still offer the much-needed feature for those die-hard fans.
According to an update at the team's Facebook page, the upcoming brawler featuring iconic characters from the PlayStation universe will support "all popular arcade stick peripherals." That sorta turns it from a casual party game into something a bit more intense and...well, "pure," maybe. I was never into fighting games in the arcades, so I wouldn't know. Just making an educated guess based on experience.
Apparently, the only caveat might be the Throw command, which apparently isn't "easily transferable" from the standard Dual Shock 3 controller to an arcade stick. Unfortunately, while it's mapped to the right stick on the DS3, a Throw will have to be executed with a button combo when using a special arcade stick. There's a picture of someone using a stick on Facebook; will that be you come October 23? Fall isn't far away...
