Hands On: Retro Fighters Follows Up Its Superb Brawler64 Pad With The StrikerDC For Dreamcast

The ultimate upgrade.

However, the company is back with another pad, this time for a system which has plenty of amazing fighting 2D games: the Sega Dreamcast. So it’s fitting that on the day we report on one of the console’s most famous titles getting a spiritual successor, we also bring you our verdict on the rather cool Retro Fighters StrikerDC pad.

Retro Fighters has even redesigned the hole in which the VMU display is viewed so it’s easier to see the LCD screen from a wider range of angles (it’s quite recessed on the original Dreamcast controller).
