HORI has revealed a new electric Pikachu design for D-Pad Controller for Nintendo Switch, joining the Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild designs that are already available.

This budget-priced Joy-Con replacement ($24.99) does not have SL and SR Buttons, LED lights, a synchronisation button, acceleration sensor, gyro sensor or the motors needed for HD Rumble.

Without Bluetooth, it can only be used in Handheld Mode but HORI promises that it is “ultra-responsive d-pad for 2D games,” meaning that it’s perfect for those that play fighting, shoot ’em ups or platformers.

The HORI Pikachu Nintendo Switch D-Pad Controller will release in North America on November 16th, priced at $24.99.
