Street Fighter is the most renowned fighting game franchise in gaming and we’re excited to be part of Street Fighter V, the first title in the series to launch on PlayStation 4. More passionate gamers choose our range of fighting game controllers over any other as they demand quality and precision to help provide a winning edge. We’re confident that our new range will continue to establish Mad Catz as category leaders and prove highly popular to established fighting game players and those new to the series.
