Fighting game legend Daigo "The Beast" Umehara has signed a promotion deal with accessories manufacturer Mad Catz. Famous for his string of tournament victories and mastery of the Street Fighter series, he'll be representing Team Mad Catz at gaming events by using their Tournament Edition FightSticks.

Daigo commented, “In my opinion, the Mad Catz Tournament Edition FightStick is the most realistic and authentic Arcade Stick available and continues to be my controller of choice when playing in tournaments.  I’m excited to be part of Team Mad Catz and look forward to working closely alongside with them.”
