New arcade stick specifically for freaky shoot-em-up

I’m a big fan of shoot-em-ups, as I mentioned the other day, but everyone knows that the best way to control a shmup is with an arcade stick — a device about as common as hen’s teeth these days. Well, legendary shmup developer Cave’s Death Smiles now has its own arcade stick. Sister doin’ it for herself!

I’m sure this stick also works with other games, but depending on the crowd you hang out with, you’ll either get derisive laughter or awed silence when you bust it out. Pre-order yours at Play-Asia for the low, low price of about $160.
