Pokken Tournament’ Wii U controller USA, Europe release date expected in March

Pokken Tournament Wii U controller was launched in Japan earlier this month. Initially there were reports that the Pokken Tournament Wii U was exclusively for the Japanese market and that the US and Europe will not be getting it.

But that was the farthest from truth as now even before the end of the month there are telltale signs that within the next few months the Pokken Tournament Wii U controller will be available across the US.

Initially when it was launched, an impression was made as if the product was meant for Japan and Japanese alone and that other markets will not be able to get hold of it. But apparently that impression was wrong.Pokken Tournament Wii U controller

As of today the Pokken Wii U controller is listed on Amazon for a price of $24.99, and a launch date of March 18, 2016. There is no denying the fact that American gaming enthusiasts are impatiently awaiting the arrival of the Pokken Wii U.

It must be noted here that the latest Pokken Tournament Wii U controller comes with the same design of the arcade version of Pokken Tournament, with the “ZL” and “ZR” buttons on its face, instead of around the back on the traditional Wii U controllers from Nintendo. In the meantime the specialized Pokken Tournament controller from HORI will be available in the west. While there’s no product image for the controller on the site currently, Amazon has it listed for a March 16 release and you can pre-order it now for just $25.

A report in the InsightTicker.com says, “Like several Bandai Namco fighting games, Pokken Tournament is enjoying a fair first run through Japanese arcade systems before it makes a console debut. However, when it was first revealed that the game would be played with a fairly particular gamepad in Japan, many had feared that the authentic gameplay style the game was intended for wouldn’t make it to consoles, let alone for Western gamers. Thankfully, as noted byDestructoid, North American players of Pokken Tournament will be able to buy a controller that replicates the true Pokemon fighting game experience”.
