The dedicated controller for the Pokémon-themed fighting game Pokkén Tournament, announced for Japan earlier this month, will also be available stateside next spring.

The controller, which was manufactured by peripheral maker HORI, is currently available to pre-order on Amazon for $25 with a release date of March 18. It's modeled after the game's arcade controls, though it's not required to play the game — a Wii U GamePad, Pro Controller or Wii Classic Controller will work just fine. It's also worth noting the new controller is only compatible with Pokkén Tournament, and requires a wired USB connection with the console.
