Nintendo is back on track. After a long time, the company has started experimenting with new peripherals once again.
We do not really know why Nintendo is launching peripherals, but the kind of moves it is making are rather business oriented. It first enthralled the users with the Pokemon themed Pokken tournament and now, it is providing the users with a Pokken controller. Seriously speaking, this is something that will work as a lucrative plan to attract more users.
This Wii U Controller has been manufactured by Hori, but to be frank, this product is not brand new. It was first launched in Japan and was kept limited to this region. But now, the device is going to be launched in the United states. However, the batch is a really limited quantity and will be launched as a limited version only.
The users in USA will finally be able to lay their hands on the device, but given the extremely less quantity being manufactured, the device will have to pre booked, so that it can be delivered. Otherwise, it will only be a dream for the users in the US.
The Wii U Controller has a certain connection to the arcade style gaming of the Pokken tournament. The buttons that you see on the controller are marked ZL and ZR, further pointing to the fact that it has been made in conjunction with the game and its features. However, you can use the hardware for other games as well.
The estimated price for this piece of hardware is $24.99. It was first exposed on the Amazon page. Expected date for the product to go on sale is about 18th March, 2016. As per the sources, since the device will be manufactured in a very limited version, and you will have to pre book, there will be chances that many will not be able to lay their hands on this product. If you are one of these people the you do not have to panic, the company has made plans to launch the Nintendo 2DS with the pokemon game themes very soon. They will be launched in red, blue and yellow colors. Although it is nowhere close to the original device, we are expecting it will be of some use to get the device instead of this.
