In December 2016, Hori released an arcade stick for the PlayStation 4. It seemingly rehashed that arcade stick with PlayStation 5 compatibility and R-Type Final 2 artwork to develop the Hori R-Type Final 2. R-Type Final 2 is the latest installment of the horizontal scrolling shooter series. Honestly, the arcade stick seems overkill for such a simple game, so Hori’s motive was probably the revenue from the collaboration, but that shouldn’t deter fighting game fanatics from copping this piece.

The price seems to be slightly higher than the original unit, which makes sense because of the new artwork and, more importantly, being designed specifically for the PS5. Plus, it is made to order. Otherwise, it seems that the features are completely identical to the original, so you can read the review of the original, the Hori Real Arcade Pro V Hayabusa, to get an idea about what this new arcade stick will be like.
