Hori and Capcom team up to bring a new and classic set of Street Fighter arcade sticks to the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo's Switch console has a strong line up of fighting games from Ultra Street Fighter 2 to Dragon Ball FighterZ, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and most recently with Mortal Kombat 11 — and that's all before Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The ability to come across quality arcade sticks for the platform natively have been a bit harder to come by, however.

Hori and Capcom have teamed up to bring some new Street Fighter-branded fight sticks to the Switch featuring art from Third and the classic cabinets for SF2 in their full-sized Real Arcade Pro and the more portable Fighting Stick Mini.

Players looking to have a more mobile experience may look into the Fighting Stick Mini which sits at around eight inches long and six inches wide while still fitting in the main eight buttons on the face. These models come in Chun-Li and Cammy plus Ryu and Ken variants from Steet Fighter 2.

The more standard RAP looks to use the same build style as the Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai for other consoles with Chun-Li or Ryu artwork from Street Fighter 3. There's also a third variant that replicates the look of the classic SF2 arcade cabinet that just screams 1990's.

All of these new sticks are scheduled to launch on October 15, 2019 with each of them having Amazon pages up for pre-orders. The web page's listing for the smaller stick lists the package as weighing around two pounds.

The Fighting Stick Mini will launch at a price of $59.99 USD while the full-sized RAP will set you back potentially $159.99. You can check out screenshots for all five new Street Fighter sticks for the Switch below.
