Pikachu Gets His Own Cute Controller For Smash Bros On Wii U


Peripheral manufacturer Hori has created an adorable Pikachu themed GameCube fight pad for the upcoming Super Smash Bros on the Wii U.

If you are interested in importing then you can grab the Pikachu Hori Classic Controller for 3,434 yen.

Thanks to those who sent this in.
