first_imgA couple of weeks before Christmas Nintendo announced that when the Wii U Pokemon fighting game Pokken Tournament gets released next year it will have its very own controller. It isn’t mandatory to play the game, but is configured to work just like the controller on the original arcade machine. At the time, it was only confirmed for release in Japan, but an Amazon listing means US gamers are set to get the controller without having to resort to an expensive import.As I said in my previous article, releasing yet another peripheral meant for a single game is not the greatest of ideas Nintendo has had for the Wii U. But still, it does mean you can play the game as it was meant to be played in its original arcade form. The controller isn’t that expensive, with Amazon listing it as costing $24.99. The listing has also allowed us to see the controller in more detail, and I’ve included the new images here.Its official name is the Pokken Tournament Pro Pad, and it’s a Nintendo licensed product being manufactured by well-known peripheral company Hori. It’s also listed as “Limited Edition” meaning Nintendo has likely only ordered a couple of batches per territory to meet launch demand. If you’re set on getting one I’d suggest a pre-order just to be sure. And in case you were wondering if this controller will work with any other games, the back label confirms it will not:Pokken Tournament is scheduled for release on March 18 in Japan, but only Q2 2016 in the US. However, the controller is listed with a firm release date of March 18 in the US, so the game could (and should) launch on the same day. We can expect a $60 price tag for the title, meaning the game and controller will set you back $85.last_img read more
