Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is coming to XBLA and PSN this summer and in line with this EXAR is releasing a new arcade stick to go alongside with it. However, for those who aren’t convinced that a new game is enough reason to get a new stick, EXAR has a little something extra up its sleeve. The upcoming ギルティギア静音スティック (literally Guilty Gear “Quiet Stick”) -Sanwa Edition- stick from EXAR comes with Sanwa’s special silent stick and buttons as demonstrated in this video.
As can be seen (and heard) in the video, the parts in the new stick are quieter than the regular Sanwa parts in the EXAR Sanwa Edition shown alongside it. While they’re not totally silent, the new muffled sound is less jarring than that of the regular parts.
The stick should be released for the PS3 sometime this summer alongside Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus. An Xbox 360 version has not been confirmed.
