Following the reveal of the SoulCalibur VI Qanba Obsidian, Qanba isn’t done working with Bandai Namco on stylish new sticks. Two more themed controllers are coming from Qanba, this time to celebrate the Tekken World Tour.

From the press release:

Bandai Namco and Qanba have prepared for the next battle by producing two limited edition Tekken World Tour Edition joysticks, the signature Drone and Obsidian! These joysticks will be standard price and are slated to go on sale in Q4 in the US and select regions. Regional availability and shipping date may be subject to change.

The Drone faceplate features the iconic crying Heihachi art while the Obsidian depicts the Tekken 7: Fated Retribution cast in 8-bit art.

“My aim was to create designs that would still be classy and relevant even after TWT 2018 is over, like a cool collector’s piece encapsulating one of the biggest years in Tekken,” says Kaydie, Qanba USA Community Manager and designer of the joysticks. “I had a ton of fun designing these joysticks and I hope that they will make you feel proud to be a Tekken fan.”

Look for these sticks to hit the market later this year, Tekken fans!
