Japan is getting a special Pokken Tournament controller for Wii U



When I played Pokken Tournament over in Japan, the first thing I noticed was the controller. It has a distinctive look and feel to it, and although it's not the most comfortable thing in the world, it works.

To celebrate the Wii U release of the game, it looks like Japan is getting a special home edition of said controller. It will launch on March 18 from Hori, and will go for 3,480 yen (roughly $28). If you don't want to shell out for it, you can use the GamePad, Classic Controller Pro, or Pro Controller. I...still want one.

Oh, and the official Japanese boxart is out, as well as a new trailer.
