Posted by

Released March 18, 2016  alongside Wii U’s successful Pokken Tournament, is the Hori Pokken Tournament Pro Pad Controller. Weather you plan on getting Pokken Tournament DX or passing the title completely, owners of the controller may be pleasantly surprised that Nintendo now offers support for the controller on its latest console the Nintendo Switch.


Enjoy authentic arcade action at home! Designed by HORI, the same designers of the official Pokken Tournament arcade cabinet controller, the Pokken Tournament Pro Pad is a limited edition controller design exclusively for use with Pokken Tournament for the Wii U. 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. Note that due to software design, Player One must always use the Wii U GamePad for local battles. Controller is only compatible with Pokken Tournament for Wii U and will not function properly with other game titles. NOTE: Please press “Start” on the Pokken Pro Pad at main title screen to activate as main controller. — Product Description via Amazon

Will offer some impressions in the future, I have one somewhere…


The controller is relatively cheap and has a great D-Pad, NeoGAF is reporting the controller sells for cheaper at GameStop.
