With the release of Pokken Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch is still a few months away, today Hori has unveiled an officially licensed Pro Controller for the hit fighting game. Now available for preorder for $24.99, the controller will be released alongside Pokken Tournament DX (Prime member pre-order for $48) on September 22nd.

Hardcore fans of the Pokemon-themed fighting game will definitely want to pick this up alongside the game’s release for Nintendo’s latest console. It includes an almost 10-foot cable and has the game’s logo printed prominently in the center of the controller. While it may make a neat collector’s piece for some, the main benefit from the controller is its ergonomic button layout, which was designed specifically for gamers to get the most out of Pokken Tournament DX.

Enjoy authentic arcade action at home! Designed by HORI, the same designers of the official Pokken Tournament arcade cabinet controller, the Pokken Tournament DX Pro Pad is a limited edition controller designed exclusively for use with Pokken Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch. This wired USB pad is ergonomic, comfortable, responsive and super effective for controlling your favorite Pokemon in Pokken Tournament battles. USB wired (9.8ft) connection is tournament legal. Controller is designed for Pokken Tournament DX for Nintendo Switch and may not function properly with other game titles.
