It probably comes as a surprise to no one that that Mad Catz recently announced that it has executed an agreement with Capcom Entertainment, Inc. to produce branded videogame controllers and accessories based on its upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken videogame. The multi-year agreement covers North America and the European territories.
The fact of the matter is that Mad Catz is pretty much the leader in the industry in regards to fightsticks, etc. Not to say there’s no competition, but Mad Catz is probably both the largest supplier of these products as well as one of the best in terms of quality. It would have been more of a shock had Capcom decided to go with someone else like say PDP who also makes some fight sticks.
“Street Fighter X Tekken is one of the most anticipated fighting game titles of all time and we are excited to bring our award winning range of FightSticks and controllers to this premium brand,” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “Our range of fighting game controllers continues to be received with enthusiasm amongst passionate gamers and we are convinced that the forthcoming Street Fighter X Tekken videogame will see sustained demand for our flagship range.”
