Victrix announces the Japanese launch of the Pro BFG, Pro FS, and Pro FS-12 at EVO Japan
From Press Release:
San Diego, CA – March 31st – To kick off their presence at EVO Japan, Victrix, a San Diego based professional gaming accessories brand owned by PDP, has announced the Japanese market launch of three of their premium controllers: the Pro BFG, the Pro FS, and the Pro FS-12. Initially announced and launched in the US in 2022, the premium controllers will be available in Japan this Spring. All three devices are compatible with PlayStation®5 console, PlayStation®4 console, and PC, and are officially licensed for PlayStation systems by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The Pro BFG will be priced at ¥24,480 while the Pro FS and Pro FS-12 will cost ¥52,480 each.
The Victrix Pro FS is a traditional stick with 8 face buttons and joystick, while the Victrix Pro FS-12 is an all new 12 button style layout. Like its predecessor, the arcade fight stick boasts authentic Sanwa Denshi Parts, and an extremely durable shell made from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum featuring an integrated 6.28° wrist slope to help reduce fatigue. Both editions of the arcade fight stick will be available in either purple or white color schemes, and will have a detachable USB-C cable for connection as-well-as a quick-access back panel for easy mods and updates. The officially licensed stick is compatible with PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC, with a built in mode switch.
For players who prefer a traditional gamepad, the Pro BFG offers a number of features and options engineered from the ground up by Victrix and designed for e-sports, including:
Full Wireless and Wired Compatibility: With the Mode Switch, players can easily swap between PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC (using X input) devices.
Modularity: The reversible left module allows for both the standard PlayStation stick configuration as well as offset sticks. Fans of fighting games can swap in the Fight Pad module, which replaces the right stick with six microswitch buttons. The D-Pad, Analog Stick Caps, and Analog Stick Gates are also interchangeable.
Four Mappable Back Buttons with User-Configurable Profiles: Players can map the back buttons on the fly with the Profile Button, and save up to 3 unique profiles for button mappings
Patented Multi-Position Clutch Triggers™: Boasting 5 different stopping points, the patented clutch triggers allow players to tune the trigger pulls to their specific liking, whether they want hair triggers, standard triggers, or something in the middle
Low Latency Audio with EQ Profiles: The Pro BFG delivers the highest possible audio quality through the controller’s 3.5mm Headset Jack. The controller is also compatible with 3D Audio on PS5™ consoles.
Victrix Control Hub Customization App: Players can make their controller as unique as their playstyle with the free Victrix Control Hub app on PC. The Control Hub allows players to configure button and EQ settings to fit their play style, run diagnostics, and update the controller’s firmware all in one place.
EVO Japan attendees interested in experiencing the controllers first hand can stop by Victrix’s booth where they will find demo stations for the Pro BFG, as well as the Pro FS and Pro FS-12. They will also be available for sale to fans on site.
“Bringing these controllers to Japan has been a goal since their initial launch,” said Trevor Lehr, Director of Product Development at Victrix. “We can’t wait for fans here to experience some of the best fighting game controllers on the market”
