Stylish New Qanba Obsidian Fight Stick Appears, Pre-Orders Now Open [UPDATED]

Qanba adds another fight stick to its PlayStation collection.

Following up on the Qanba Crystal and more recently the Qanba Dragon, another stick is joining Qanba’s PlayStation 3/4/PC arsenal: say hello to the new Qanba Obsidian: sleek and stylish in its simplicity.

The Obsidian shares much in common with its Dragon Big brother: Sanwa Denshi OBSF buttons and JLF stick (with a metal balltop), touchpad, headphone jack, a tournament lock switch, and LED accent lighting; however unlike the Dragon (or Razer’s new Panthera) it does not feature a lifting top panel for easy access. Nor does it share the Dragon’s premium price tage: it instead matches the Panthera at $199.99 USD. It is PlayStation 3 and 4 compatible, and PC-compatible via X-Input and D-Input drivers.

Pre-orders are now open, so get in there quick if you want to be among the first to sport this shiny new fight stick at your local tournament!

UPDATE: Arcade Shock also now has pre-orders open for the Qanba Obsidian, and is offering free (continental U.S.) shipping and a bonus Guardian carrier bag for December pre-orders. (eightarc’s Celery pre-orders should also be eligible for the Guardian backpack.)
