Today marks the beginning of Tokyo Game Show 2012’s public showing and, like many other companies in the video game industry, our friends at Mad Catz will have a presence at the convention. Their booth will offer visitors an early look at two of their upcoming products: the Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Versus Series SH, which features Sanwa’s new silent buttons, and the TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 Arcade FightStick TE S+, which was previously revealed at PAX Prime.
In addition, Mad Catz’ sponsored players (Daigo Umehara, Tokido, and Mago) will be joined by EVO 2012 Soul Calibur V champion Shining Decopon and Tougeki 2012 Tekken Tag Tournament 2 champion FRB|AO in a variety of exhibition matches in their respective games. Visitors to the Mad Catz booth will also be able to challenge these players to see if they have what it takes to stand up to the best.
These events, as well as special giveaways and contests, will be hosted by Mad Catz all weekend long, so be sure to check it out if you’re attending the show. For those outside of Tokyo, Cross Counter Asia will be covering the entire event, so stay tuned.
