When it comes to input devices for the Nintendo Switch, the default options are the bundled Joy-Cons, but there is also the option of getting your hands on the Pro controller which offers up a slightly more familiar layout. However if arcade-style gaming is more your thing, then you’ll be pleased with Hori’s upcoming offering.
The company has announced via Twitter that they will be launching the Hori Real Arcade Pro.V Hayabusa fight stick for the Nintendo Switch. The design of the fight stick is more or less similar to Hori’s other offerings, except that this seems to have been designed with the Nintendo Switch in mind and will sport a Nintendo Switch decal, but otherwise it should function pretty much the same as its other controllers.

Unfortunately in terms of pricing and availability, Hori has yet to disclose those details but we guess this is something that gamers can look forward to in the future, but pricing shouldn’t be too different from Hori’s other fight stick accessories for other console platforms. At the moment there aren’t too many arcade fighting games available for the Switch, or that are being planned so we’re not sure if you’ll be able to get the most out of it.
However if you do prefer this method of input for your gaming then you’ll want to keep an eye out for the accessory’s launch.
