Superbot Entertainment have announced today that arcade sticks will be compatible with PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale.
SuperBot Entertainment confirmed the news on its Facebook page, posting that it’s “happy to announce that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will include controller configuration support for all popular arcade stick peripherals!”
“Every attack, combo, and strategy that can be performed on the DualShock 3 controller is seamlessly mapped to arcade button layouts,” says the post.
“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,” continues the post.
“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.”
Does this make you happy? We’re easy either way, however we know the hardcore fight fans out there will love this news.
