You may remember that last week, Pokken Tournament would have a Pikachu-themed Controller released by Hori in Japan this June. Well, we've just received confirmation that GameStop is getting them exclusively in North America.
The controller is fairly basic in its design, with the standard A, B, X, Y face buttons, as well as 4 mid-controller buttons to reflect Start, Select, ZL and ZR. The final two buttons are mounted on the shoulders. Pikachu is silhouetted in the middle with his name etched across the centre. While this may work well for Pokken, the absence of analog controls and the small ZL and ZR buttons may make it difficult to use with other games.
The controller is scheduled to be released on July 31st in very limited quantities, only being carried by select GameStops in USA and Canada. For those of you with a Wii U, this is definitely a fantastic purchase!
