PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale To Support Arcade Sticks

Developer SuperBot Entertainment has announced that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will support almost all kinds of game-pads and sticks, including the arcade sticks we usually use to play the arcade fighting games.

Fans of the fighting game genre can use their favourite arcade-style controller to play Battle Royale to full effect. Every attack, combo, and strategy that can be performed on the DualShock 3 controller is seamlessly mapped to arcade button layouts.

By default, nearly all DualShock 3 controller commands are assigned to the same buttons on an arcade stick. The joystick takes care of the character’s movement and combines with the Square, Triangle, and Circle buttons to perform the full range of 24 unique attacks.

In fact, joystick inputs behave exactly the same as DualShock 3 D-pad inputs would, so arcade stick functionality is natively supported in PlayStation All-Stars

There is a small difference, i.e. on Arcade sticks, players will have to use a simple button combination to use the throw command while on dual shock game pads, the right stick can be used for the purpose. But that doesn’t make things unequal, right?
