With the shortage of fightsticks available at the moment, there aren’t a huge number of choices for newer fightsticks on the current market.
This, unfortunately, is also the case for the Xbox Series X/S. The emphasis on fightsticks for the previous generation was placed mostly on the Playsation 4 meaning there is plenty of choice when it comes to the PS5 due to backwards compatibility.
The Xbox One however had a limited supply of first and third-party fightsticks. Still, with the advent of universal offerings from the likes Mayflash there are still options available for the Xbox Series X/S. So without further delay, let’s see what they are.

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. Perhaps the stick’s best feature, however, 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 and added metal plates mean it’s better quality too.
Throw in a headphone jack, additional customization like the ability to swap out the artwork and, of course, 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. Details can be found here.
Hori Fighting Stick Alpha – Dedicated fightstick licenced for Xbox Series X/S
The only official licenced fightstick for Xbox Series X/S right now is from Hori. This fightstick offers a number of interesting features such as an accessible opening for easy maintenance and upgrading, the ability to switch out artwork for you own and Hori’s own quality parts to boot.
Whilst a bit pricey for what it is, if you’re looking for a dedicated fighstick for Xbox One Series X that will work straight out of the box then 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 on the pricey side you are truly getting all the best features. This includes a premium aluminium 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 Atrox – One of Razer’s best premium fightsticks
The Atrox was technically Razer’s first fightstick released in 2013. 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 still retains the quality and features that made the original so 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
