With the recent release of tag-team fighting game Antinomy of Common Flowers on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, we were offered to give away a Qanba Obsidian fight stick featuring exclusive artwork from the game.
The gift package also includes a digital copy of the game, to be selected between PlayStation 4 (also PlayStation 5 compatible through backward compatibility) and Nintendo Switch versions depending on the winner’s preference, and a Brook Wingman Nintendo Switch converter that will let you use that Qanba Obsidian even on Nintendo’s platform.
This will be a raffle-type giveaway running for ten days. Each day you’ll get to increase your winning chances by performing the actions below; at the end of the giveaway, we’ll randomly select a winner. Do note that only North American readers are eligible due to shipping limitations.
Let’s begin with the Qanba Obsidian fight stick, which is the most expensive item in the package at $199. Below we’ve detailed all of its main features, though for a full-fledged assessment look no further than Kai’s glowing 9.1/10 review from some time ago.

The Qanba Obsidian is equipped with Sanwa Denshi joystick and pushbuttons for the most authentic Japanese arcade-style experience, wherever you play. Universally agreed as the standard for tournament play, the Sanwa Denshi components ensure the highest precision so nothing inhibits your A-game.
