PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale developer SuperBot Entertainment has announced on its facebook page that the game will support arcade stick controllers.
Here’s the full announcement:
“We are happy to announce that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will include controller configuration support for all popular arcade stick peripherals! Fans of the fighting game genre can use their favorite arcade-style controller to play Battle Royale to full effect. Every attack, combo, and strategy that can be performed on the DualShock 3 controller is seamlessly mapped to arcade button layouts.
By default, nearly all DualShock 3 controller commands are assigned to the same buttons on an arcade stick. The joystick takes care of the character’s movement and combines with the Square, Triangle, and Circle buttons to perform the full range of 24 unique attacks. In fact, joystick inputs behave exactly the same as DualShock 3 D-pad inputs would, so arcade stick functionality is natively supported in PlayStation All-Stars. The only exception is the throw command, which uses the Right Stick on the DualShock controller. With an arcade stick, throws are simply performed with an easy button combination, similar to many traditional fighting games.
Whether you prefer using a PlayStation gamepad or an arcade stick controller, we’re committed to making sure you get the most out of the Battle Royale experience! October 23 is right around the corner. Are you ready for your ultimate match-up?”
With new arcade sticks available for Dead or Alive 5 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2, fighting game fans have a lot of new games they can use for their controllers. I wonder if my old Blazblue stick will work for the game?
