By on July 6, 2012 at 9:49 am

As is the case with most major fighting game releases these days, Dead or Alive 5 is getting its own custom arcade sticks.  Made by Hori, the sticks are based on the same case as their Soul Calibur V and Gundam Extreme Vs arcade sticks. The sticks are scheduled to be released on September 27 in Japan for ¥14,801, which is around $185 in US currency. Amazon Japan has pre-order pages up for the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 versions. No word yet from Hori whether these will be released in the US as well.

D3v has worn many hats within the general fighting game community. The self proclaimed "Asian white boy" from the Philippines has done everything from arcade stick modification to match commentary. When not writing for Shoryuken's front page, D3v spends part of his time running tournaments in the Philippines, including the country's biggest fighting game event, Manila Cup.
