Marvel has announced on its official website that Performance Designed Products LLC has created a limited Marvel Edition Versus Fighting Pad for the Xbox 360.

The pad was designed specially for Marvel and fighting game fans, and is decorated with Marvel’s SIEGE event from 2010.

“In the last few years, fighting games have re-emerged as an incredibly popular genre in the console gaming world, with a dedicated, serious audience that demands high-quality tools,” said Tom Roberts, chief technical officer, Performance Designed Products. “We have designed the Versus Fighting Pad to be the ultimate game pad for fighting-game players while reflecting the super heroics of Marvel in this special-edition controller.”

The wired six-button controller has “high quality micro-switch activators,” implemented in the thumb stick, so that it feels more like an arcade joystick yet compact like a thumb pad at the same time. The thumb stick also has a rubberized, over-tooled cap while the pad itself has a satin grip finish.

The Marvel Edition Versus Fighting Pad will be available at retail and on for a suggested retail price of $39.99 beginning February 14.
