« Nacon announces Daija Arcade Stick for PS4 at Gamescom 2018, coming Fall 2018 in Europe »

[Update Aug. 23 2:00am PDT]: The Daija stick does carry Sanwa Denshi parts according to Kayane.

European peripherals manufacturer Nacon is joining the arcade stick fray with its own design.

Called the Daija Arcade Stick, this product is a change for Nacon, who is more commonly associated for its third-party controllers for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as PC accessories. This will work for PS4, PlayStation 3 and PC.

The stick has a box-like aesthetic with a noticeable hand rest just below the main panel as well as a grille pattern on the side. The main panel seems that it can be customizable to allow custom artwork. The right side, which includes special controls, also features a red button that likely allow players instant access to the Daija's internals. It also features headset support. As for the stick's parts, it's currently unknown what it will offer but the box does hint that the Daija will possibly be using those from Sanwa Denshi.

This was announced at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany. Along with promotion from Nacon themselves, French player Marie-Laure "Kayane" Norindr was also promoting the stick.

According to Kayane, the Daija Arcade Stick is planned for a Fall 2018 release in Europe for €199.99. She also mentioned that there are plans to release it outside the region.
