    Remember that bland and generic looking Pokkén controller Hori released a while back? Yeah, forget that. Nintendo Everything has reported that Hori will be releasing an awesome Pikachu-themed controller in Japan later this year, June to be precise. Not to forget that its price will be 3,758 JPY which converts to £23 / €29 / $33.

    I might buy this one because it actually looks really cool.

    why exactly are the z buttons in the middle and not on the shoulders where they belong?

    It's like playing rock, paper, scissors with yellow gloves. Amazing!

    Still looks quite bland. I'd buy a Braxien one maybe, but not more Pikachu crap.

    I don't see the logic in that either because the shoulder buttons are extremely useful and this type of layout seems to make the experience uncomfortable.
    Yep. It has some R/P/S thrown in but it's still a fun fighting game, imo.

    OH good. I was just thinking, "boy if only I had more controllers for my Wii/U."

    I also had fun, that is for sure. No objection there.

    But I don't think that it's worth buying an extra controller to reach the shoulder buttons easier. I like the color though. ;-)
