July 10, 2016 - Super Smash Bros
Custom marginal builder Hit Box recently suggested a Smash Box, a custom-built Smash Bros. arcade controller that’s fundamentally a GameCube controller with buttons instead of sticks.
The folks during Hit Box trust that fingers on buttons extend some-more accurate control over fighting games. They’ve already expelled a Hit Box controller for a Xbox One (with preorder open for a PS4 version), with a YouTube channel full of videos demonstrating how 4 buttons take a place of a directional pad.
The Smash Box is like a Hit Box, usually with a garland some-more Sanwa Denshi arcade buttons. Four any for a analog stick, d-pad and a GameCube controller’s singular C-stick. Along with a face and shoulder buttons, that’s a whole lot of tapping.
Along with precision, Hit Box’s Shawn Huffer tells Kotaku there are health advantages to going all buttons as well.
“Turning a pad into a arrange of a keyboard/arcade hybrid is approach improved for ergonomics too. Smash Bros Melee has arrange of a carpal hovel widespread going on as eSports drives a diversion to get some-more and some-more submit complicated and hardcore, so Smash Box is designed to assistance forestall players from blazing out their wrists as well.”
Here’s how it all comes together.
