That Pikachu-themed Pokken Tournament controller is coming to North America
A few days ago, HORI pulled back the curtain on a special Pikachu version of its Pokken Tournament controller for Japan. We weren’t sure at the time if it would be sold in North America, but now we have a clear answer.
A GameStop source tipped us off that the controller is now listed in the retailer’s database as “Wii U Pokken Pro Pad Pikachu”. Furthermore, it seems that pre-orders have opened. You can put down $5 at your local store to reserve the controller. It hasn’t appeared online as of now, but that should change at some point in the future.
GameStop lists a tentative May 7 release date in its database for the Pikachu version of the Pokken Tournament controller, though that can mean anything (not at all final). It’ll cost $29.99 at launch – just like the standard version.
