The FightStick will also allow access to a compartment for storage and the components themselves for ease of use. As well as Capcom's upcoming fighter, the FightStick will also support compatibility with Mortal Kombat X, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, among many others.
