Following the announcement of its licensing agreement with 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan, Thrustmaster unveils the three PC products to be release at the end of April.

We announced this a few weeks ago .. but here are some more details

“The public is looking forward to living the intensity of the 2002 FIFA World Cup™. Thrustmaster also want to offer PC gamers the chance to absorb themselves in this huge sporting event ” says Michael Flanagan, UK Managing Director.

Thrustmaster’s unique “team” of accessories will be launched at the end of April 2002 and will include three products: the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ Digital gamepad, the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ Dual Analog gamepad and the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ Duopack.

Both the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ Digital gamepad and the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ Dual Analog gamepad sport an exciting soccer shirt design – black and green colors with white strips- and above all the prestigious emblem logo. They perfectly combine user-friendliness (they are Plug & Play) with a fantastic ergonomic design.
