An apparent licensing issue is preventing the recently announced Marvel vs Capcom 3 TE Fightsticks from entering the United Kingdom.

With a design based off the incredibly high quality Street Fighter IV Tournament Edition sticks, the new MvC3 sticks were bound to be of a high standard however only players within the US will be able to experience them come launch. Due to licensing issues and various other problems the new products wont be available to UK customers until a later and as of now undisclosed date.

If you’re still in the market for one of these your best bet would be to order it online – however expect your wallet to take a financial beating as no doubt these products will fetch a premium price in their limited run.
