As far as officially licensed DualShock 4s go, this might be the most unusual controller the PS4 has seen yet. However, it won’t be the first of its kind.

According to 4Gamer (via Hachima), Japanese peripheral maker Hori is releasing the above PS4 Slime-shaped controller.

You hold the controller upside down, revealing the face buttons, d-pad, and thumbsticks. It even has a touchpad.

Again, this isn’t a first! As Hachima reminds us, Hori also released a Slime controller for the PlayStation 2:
