Most PS5 players probably already use DualSense to play their fighting games. Despite being a revolutionary controller in its own right thanks to its ergonomic design and incomparable haptic feedback, it is a controller to suit all types of games, more than a specific genre.

PlayStation has revealed two new fighting game accessories for the PS5 that are coming soon. The first is the Fighting Commander OCTA for $59.99, “the ultimate controller for 2D Fighting Games and many other 2D titles,” according to the product’s listing on HORI’s website. Skip DualSense Dual Analog Support, Fighting Commander has a six-button layout on the right grip that brings the R1 and R2 buttons to the controller face.

Both OCTA Combat Commander and Fighting Stick α is also compatible with PS4 and PC.

There’s no indication as to when these accessories will officially hit the market, but their announcement should be a reassuring sign for PS5 fighting game players. Guilty Gear Strive launched last year on PS5, PS4, and PC, and despite being one of the best ways to play the game, the PS5’s lack of dedicated battle controller support hasn’t benefited the game. Guilty GearThe director is uncertain about the future of the series after Striving, so hopefully when these HORI accessories release, there will be a huge amount of players on PS5 to help justify the continuation of the game.
