The Sega Dreamcast has a reputation of being a mecca of sorts for top quality fighting games. Released back in November 1998, the home console saw the release of several legendary competitive fighting titles.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, Capcom vs. SNK 2, Soul Calibur, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Guilty Gear X, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Dead or Alive 2, and many more are among the Dreamcast catalog.

Though it is certainly an old piece of hardware, die-hard fans still hold it near and dear to their hearts. And that was likely the inspiration for Brook's new controller converter.

The company has designed an adapter that will allow you to use PlayStation 3 and 4 fightsticks on your Dreamcast and PC.

"While the Dreamcast had quite a variety of amazing fighting games in its library, like many other systems during it's time, lacked a proper arcade stick to use them on," the official product description reads. This converter features a USB and wireless interface, button mapping, upgradable firmware, turbo and vibration features, and X-Input support.

The converter is currently available for pre-order on Arcade Shock, and has a price tag of $39.99. Its first release will be limited and is expected to ship in mid to late May 2018, so if you're interested in this product you'll want to act fast.
