Performance

The Street Fighter II Mini Fight Stick that fits your palm sports a microswitch Korean joystick along with action buttons. The joystick has a square gate and dust washer, and it feels good given its size. There is nice auditory feedback to confirm your movements, although you have to be precise with your movements as there is little to no room between edges. The redesigned buttons have a nice clickiness to them and even sound like mouse clicks.

Hardware

At least on PC, this nifty product is plug and play, but you may need an additional controller to navigate menus on console. Made in China, there is a detachable micro USB cable that can be plugged into the backside. Something worth noting is that it is smaller and heavier than it looks, with the latter probably being due to the microswitches, but both things are actually good. We already have super mini arcade sticks, so this arcade stick takes the concept even further. As for the weight, it is heavy enough not to move around when playing, but it is light enough to act as a keychain or simply feel lightweight in your pocket should you questionably decide to store it there and potentially damage the joystick.

Appearance

Featured is a high resolution art reproduction that does its origin justice. One glimpse at the artwork can launch you decades back. If you were not born during that time, you might still feel nostalgic regardless.

Conclusion

For the bold concept that New Wave Toys gracefully delivers, this arcade stick. It does not slack just because its main goal is to be small. It is both small and competent, doing the best it can given size limitations. You can also check out a similar mini fightstick called the Ipega Gladiator.
