GameStop Expo Previews PDP Mortal Kombat X Fight Pad
09/17/2014 01:16 PM :: Posted at 01:16 PM EST by Mick-Lucifer

Last week's GameStop Expo garnered the first glimpse of official Mortal Kombat X Fight Pads that could be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2015!


Kustom MKX Kontrols at GameSpot Expo via Iron Galaxy Studios (Killer Instinct: Season 2) Community Manager: ceojebailey.

The custom pads reconfigure conventional Sony & Microsoft controls, shifting L1 & R1 shoulder buttons onto the face for a 6-button layout. The large, equally sized buttons are reminiscent of the fondly remembered second generation Sega Genesis joypad - a favourite amongst fighting fans of the time.

A thumbstick replaces the usual directional input interface. The thumbstick side (player left) features an asymmetrical, elongated design. This seems to compliment a combination of arcade stick and joypad philosophies, allowing players to comfortably play overhanded (like arcades), full thumbs, or a combination of both grips.

The pad is based on Performance Designed Products's previous Versus Controller. Series mascot Scorpion appears on the pad design, with the new dragon logo and trademarked Mortal Kombat X title. [Related Article: Mortal Kombat X Scorpion Box Art].

PDP created official fight sticks for Mortal Kombat (2011), part of the Tournament Edition deal. They were later sold individually to positive review. PDP were instrumental in Mortal Kombat Online's sponsorship of this year's unofficial Mortal Kombat Evo Tournament.

The previewed controls are still pending approval [from Warner Brothers]. There is presently no information regarding availability for other platforms. Mortal Kombat X arrives April 14, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & PC. Register to follow and join all the top discussions on the Mortal Kombat X forum.
