LOS ANGELES, Calif., May 11th 2005. -NubyTechTM today announced a new line of officially licensed Street Fighter® controllers for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. These limited edition controllers will be the first wireless peripherals on the market featuring the Street Fighter® characters from Capcom®. Each limited edition controller is based on custom artwork from Udon comics and will feature a gorgeous lenticular center display. The controllers will be shown at the Electronic Entertainment Expo May 18-20, 2005, and will be available at select retailers in July.
Each one of 10,000 units will be numbered to mark their collectivity and come packaged inside a custom leather case with batteries, a wireless receiver, a keychain or dog tag (depending on the character), and a special comic that unveils each fighter's anthology. Hardcore fighting game experts will be pleased with the six button layout as well as the overall "feel" of the pad that rivals any controller ever released!
"With the success of our previously released Street Fighter lines, we are taking another step to show Capcom fans the best possible controllers in terms of quality and presentation," says Paul Chen, president and COO of NubyTech.
The official Capcom-licensed controllers will feature: Blanka, one of the original eight "World Warriors" from Street Fighter II; Cammy, a British bombshell who made her debut in Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers; Sagat, Ryu's nemesis since the original Street Fighter arcade game released in 1987; and Evil Ryu, one of the most feared fighters in the series since his introduction as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha 2.
