Japanese manufacturing firm Cyber Gadget has announced that it plans to sell a special arcade stick for the Nintendo 3DS XL in Japan. The accessory will go on sale sometime in late October and looks to be perfect for those considering getting Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS XL. It will cost 3,000 Japanese yen, around $30.

  1. Just goes to show how far intense fighting game fans will go to have the best controller option.

    1. But in this case, this stick is not optimal. This company is committing the mistake of thinking that Smash is a traditional fighter. I have yet to see someone using a huge ass arcade stick for Smash and saying it’s a good idea.

  2. but all it does is touch the buttons. it’s a chunk of plastic, like any old Gameboy accessory that “enhanced” gameplay

      1. You need to get a life just as much as he does lol. You’re editing pictures of him for goodness sake.

      2. this whole situation ith disgusting. @heroponluigi, lord sasori DOES NOT NEED YOUR SILLY RESPECT and @Anonymous, the clergy of the church of sasori condemns your actions. the hipcrisy of the nintendrones has been exposed, you both shall be in your EVERYONE PURGATORY, while we, the children of the church of sasori look you from our M rated paradise. and the pickle in the pic has a name, sasori grew fond on it and is named: Dick the d*ck, better known as ricardo.

        amen

      3. lol that image is the profile pic of “sasori bukake mii” on gravatar.

    1. doesn’t look too uncomfortable. It’s meant to sit on your lap or on a table and it appears that the L and R buttons are in the top corners. The only reason this might beat the regular 3DS is the joystick.

  3. Smash has never used an arcade stick. Besides, this looks uncomfortable, impractical (can’t close 3DS), unnecessary, and a little desperate.

  4. I think A Gamecube-mod for the 3DS XL would have been a much better mod choice. You know, an external addon case that makes the button configuration feel like a Gamecube controller rather than a SNES control format.

    but chances are, Smash Bros will have a controller configuration option to change the buttons.

  5. If it covers the D-pad for movement, it’s useless. You can’t move about in Smash Bros with the D-pad, otherwise we would’ve been able to use Wii compatible fight sticks with Brawl

  6. looks cool if you’re into street fighter or tekken, but for smash its a useless peripheral.

    1. Whoops wrong article. Anyways I was replying to HLG’s question: Ok, in all honesty, what is testosterone? I’m not trying to be funny or anything. I just want to know. :3

  7. why not use the circle pad pro instead?remember that thing??? lol i still have one and i love it too bad not many games use it. wonder if smash 3ds or MH4 will have a CPP option

  8. It looks like it’s on the d-pad, not the circle pad.
    … so it’s kind of useless for Smash.

  9. this is pretty stupid to be honest. Smash never used an arcade stick. The game isn’t even optimized for an arcade stick. the game is too loose and chaotic for something that simple. You need all your fingers ready on every button for smash and your thumb on the stick. With this thing. you’ll need your entire left hand on it to use it correctly, the system will have to be stationed, and you’ll have to poke buttons. making your entire left hand of the controller or in other words, your evasive controls lacking completely and the right side (offense and defense) weakened and vulnerable. you’ll be an easy ass target if you use this controller.

  10. Mah! How can they claim that it is designed for SSB? The thing people question about the lay-out on the 3ds for smash is the button placement. lf they were really catering to pro smash players they would have changed the right hand side, not make the left hand side incompatible… how are you supposed to reach the L-button with a humongous stick like that?!

    Well, maybe they just targeted the people who want to play the original DK or some other old VC-title with a classic feel, but that has to be a niche audience, especially at 30 bucks…

  11. Someone should make an arcade stick for Wii U that acts as a Pro Controller (or a GC controller for possible Virtual Console support in the future).
