If you’re a WWE fan then you’re probably looking forward to the release of WWE All-Stars and, let’s face it, why wouldn’t you be?! The title brings together WWE superstars from the past and present, to create what is quite possibly the best roster in the history of wrestling video games. When you couple that with the arcade style gameplay, you have a game which is sure to appeal to every WWE fan out there.
The good folk at MadCatz have taken note of this fact and to compliment the arcade style gameplay, they will be releasing BrawlSticks and BrawlPads for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. Now, if you’ve had the pleasure of using their Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV sticks and pads, you will know that they enhance the gameplay experience immensely. The WWE All-Stars BrawlSticks and BrawlPads aim to do exactly the same, so if you’re serious about nailing that suplex or body slam then you might just have to invest in these lovely accessories.
