The Nintendo Switch has been out for a little over a week now, which is ample time to run out of games to buy and start looking for extra accessories. Here are some of these cases, stands and accessories I’ve been using with my new hybrid gaming system.
The Nintendo Switch is getting a fight stick. Japanese peripheral maker Hori will release a Hayabusa stick for the Switch. Details to come at a later date, and no word yet on an international release.
Just because you’re playing a console game doesn’t mean you have to use a console controller. Hori’s Tactical Assault Commander (TAC) Pro brings streamlined PC controls to the PlayStation 4 and 3, just in time for first-person shooter season.
For those console owners who prefer a keyboard and mouse to a controller, there’s this.
It's called Mike Cover for Wii U. And yes, it really looks like a toilet plunger.
Behold the limited edition Final Fantasy XI XIth Anniversary keyboard, nearly $300 worth of Moogle-embossed enter keys and FF-fonted F-keys. It's so beautiful.
I don't care if this is the Japanese PlayStation equivalent of a ShamWow commercial, it's still captivating/horrifying to watch.
Japanese peripheral company Hori, in their infinite widsom, have decided that the otherwise classy Wii U pad needs a little spicing up. So they've released a range of decals to help transform your expensive piece of consumer electronics into something that looks like a cheap Chinese knock-off.
Two big shooters fired out this fall: Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. If you are into shooters (I mean, really into shooters), maybe you are looking for an edge. That's exactly what Japanese peripheral maker Hori hopes it can offer with its controller designed especially for FPS games on consoles. But does the…
Lots of people play fighting games. Many are happy to use their standard control pads. But real fighting game enthusiasts insist on playing fighting games the way they were meant to be played: on an arcade-style joystick. And no stick I've ever played with has felt more like sitting at an actual arcade cabinet than…
Persona didn't actually make it. It's a game, and games cannot make arcade sticks. Rather, famed Japanese peripheral company Hori produced this PS3 fighting stick. It is to mark upcoming fighting game, Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena, which is based on the Persona role-playing game.
Those pretty plastic peripherals can be painfully pungent, as commenter Hongo found out after his recent purchase of a place to keep his PS Vita. It's Stink Up on Kotaku!
We're a little late reviewing Hori's official Mario Kart 7 Wheel peripheral, but I'm somewhat glad we are, thanks to some of the non-racing games I played with it on a whim. If this was just a piece of plastic meant for one game, the wheel is a $13 novelty at best, a luxury at worst, and not something where any…
Serious fighting game players demand high-quality controllers and Hori's got a reputation for making some of the best. The Japanese accessories company's just released a controller tied to Capcom's Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, with varieties for PS3 and Xbox 360. If you're in need of a new whuppin' stick or just…
Real men (and women) who play games (well, fighting games) don't use control pads. Those are for children. Real men (and women) use sticks. And some of the best around are HORI's sticks.
Though the game may have released this week, the official fight stick for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom isn't too far behind, says stickmaker Hori. It reuses some, eh, old MvC art and clocks in at $160, but hey, it's official, right? It'll be in stock sometime this month. A BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend stick also is…
Play a first-person shooter on a PC and you get the precision of a mouse. Play a first-person shooter on a console and you get the precision of a small plastic thumbstick, which is nowhere near as precise as a mouse.
When Mario Kart hit the Wii, Nintendo released a goofy plastic steering wheel that was supposed to simulate driving. Mario Kart 7 is around the corner. Know what that means?
