Superbot Entertainment, developers of the Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, have confirmed that the game will support arcade sticks.
“We are happy to announce that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will include controller configuration support for all popular arcade stick peripherals! Fans of the fighting game genre can use their favorite arcade-style controller to play Battle Royale to full effect,” read the official Facebook page for Superbot Entertainment.
“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.
“The only exception is the throw command, which uses the Right Stick on the DualShock controller. With an arcade stick, throws are simply performed with an easy button combination, similar to many traditional fighting games.”
