DiveKick is a two-switch / two-button fighting game due out in Spring on PC, PS3 and the Vita. Looks fun, and the controllers use arcade standard jumbo buttons that are pretty easy to mount and illuminate if you wanted to build your own controller.
Reminded me of the two-accessibility switch Tekken 6 I set up at Develop Brighton with SpecialEffect, and later at RE:PLAY 2011. That way used Kick and Punch for your two buttons, and if you held both you'd trigger a grab move. Players at Blackpool almost destroyed the table they were so rough, but the switches survived. Two-buttons is enough for really fun two-player battles. But what about one-switch?
For the ultimate in one-switch fighting controls, I highly recommend trying the PC game Way of the Empty Hand 2 by Graeme Singh. Love that 2009 game, and I'd be well chuffed to see its one-button mechanics featured in the next Capcom, Namco or SEGA fighting game as an option.
Many thanks to Ian Hamilton for the link.
