    Online retailer play-asia.com has listed a rather exciting new peripheral, the Hori Fighting Stick Wii. Hori is a widely popular Japanese manufacturer specializing in fighting sticks, and the launch of such a peripheral for the Wii will no doubt come as good news to fans of classic fighting games on the Virtual Console.The stick is listed as launching in Japan in August of this year, and currently caries a US $52.90 price tag via import. Hori has confirmed to IGN that a US release is also planned.

    If its good I'll definitely get this, would be brilliant for when we get the Neo-Geo titles and the Art of Fighting compilation.

    not too sure on that but ifnot i hope is connects like the classic controller does but lets you tuck the wiimote underneath the arcade controller

    Dittio, would be quite nice if it was wireless, I suspect it is however as the stick has wii remote specific buttons ('home' '-' '+' etc...) which I doubt are accessible from the GC port?

    Of course I'd be suprised if this got a UK release...

    Amusingly this stick will probably be bigger than the Wii console itself.

    Thread revival!

    So, why isn't there a US release yet? I just recently ordered mine from buy.com. Amazingly enough, Target.com has it on their site but states that it's an import too.

    I think Neo Geo Stick 2 looks better.
