Peripheral-maker Hori is rereleasing a dedicated controller for the Switch game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Mega 39, as well as one for the PS4 game Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone DX. The controller’s original run sold out, after which sellers on eBay took advantage and marked it up like crazy.

Both controllers are priced at 34,980 yen plus tax ($323). Famitsu reports that pre-orders start in Japan today. No word about an international release.
