The fighting stick has compact design but it still has all the features of a normal arcade stick controller. It still keeps 8-button layout and micro switch activated joystick and features Turbo functions. Even though it is compact, the Hori Fighting Stick Mini is comortable and has enough room to rest your wrist. Its rubberized feet grip firmly to smooth surfaces so it is really stable.
