You knew it was coming, but now it's official. Mad Catz has officially announced their Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition sticks, just in time for the game's release on February 15th. Marvel and Capcom have signed off on these FightSticks, which are limited to a run of only 5,000. They'll come individually numbered, and in a collectors edition package.
These units will feature Sanwa Denshi components. There's the 30mm action buttons and the Japanese style ball head, all set in the Vewlix arcade cab configuration. You'll also get dual-turbo and options like screw-on rubber feet.
Hopefully we'll get some official pricing and images on this stick soon. Mad Catz says that the GameShark Store will stock the sticks, so those interested will want to check back there.
