What Fightsticks work on Xbox Series X?

With the shortage of fightsticks, there aren’t many choices for newer fightsticks on the current market.

This, unfortunately, is also the case for the Xbox Series X/S. However, the emphasis on fightsticks for the previous generation was placed mostly on the PlayStation 4, meaning there are plenty of choices for the PS5 due to backward compatibility.

However, the Xbox One had a limited supply of first and third-party fightsticks. Still, with universal offerings like Mayflash, options are available for the Xbox Series X/S.

So, without further delay, let’s see what they are.

Xbox X Series Fight Sticks At a Glance

Mayflash F300 – Great value fightstick that can be played on most platforms


If you’re looking for a decent entry-level stick, look no further than the Mayflash F300.

As a beginner fightstick, it’s great, featuring the standard 8-button arcade layout and joystick. However, perhaps the stick’s best feature is the ability to play on almost any platform, including Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PC, and even switch.

It’s a universal stick that’s fully customizable and can be upgraded to Sanwa Denshi parts. 

A recent firmware update has allowed the F300 to work with the Xbox Series X/S.

Mayflash F500 – Bigger, better, and more customizable than the F300

For not much more money, you can get the Mayflash F500, which is bigger and better than the F300 

The F500 sports a better design; added metal plates mean better quality.

Throw in a headphone jack, additional customization like the ability to swap out the artwork, and the universal feature means you have a pretty sweet deal. 

Like the F300, Mayflash has released a recent firmware update that makes the F500 compatible with Xbox Series X/S.

Hori Fighting Stick Alpha – Dedicated fightstick licensed for Xbox Series X/S

The only official licensed fightstick for Xbox Series X/S is from Hori. This fightstick offers several interesting features, such as an accessible opening for easy maintenance and upgrading, switching out artwork for your own, and Hori’s quality parts.

While a bit pricey for what it is, if you’re looking for a dedicated fighstick for the Xbox One Series X that will work straight out of the box, look no further than the Hori Fighting Stick Alpha.

Victrix Pro FS For Xbox One – Ultra-premium fightstick with a hefty price to boot

Although the Victrix Pro FS is a bit pricey, you are getting all the best features. This includes a premium aluminum design, quality Sanwa parts, and a unique detachable joystick for extra portability.

Although the Victrix Pro was originally designed for the Xbox One, this fightstick should have no problem connecting to an Xbox Series X/S.

Razer Panthera Dragon Ball Fighter Z – One of Razer’s best premium fightsticks 

The Atrox was technically Razer’s first fightstick, released in 2013. However, its success was the foundation for the hugely popular Panthera series for the PlayStation.

Razer recently updated it with this DBZ fighters version, but it retains the quality and features that made the original great.

An easy-to-open top panel and included tools make modding a breeze. You also have quality Sanwa parts included as standard. Overall, a fantastic fightstick that can be played easily on the Xbox Series X/S.
