This July, Japanese peripheral maker Hori is releasing a Joy-Con with a proper D-pad. Thank goodness for that! You will, however, have to trade some standard features for it.
Hori’s Onyx, available now in Europe, if the first officially-licensed third-party wireless controller for the PlayStation 4. It’s got its good points, like the Xbox-style staggered analog stick layout and one piece d-pad, but the lack of a headphone jack and other key DualShock 4 features might be a dealbreaker.
Back in 2012 we reviewed Hori’s Fighting Edge for the PlayStation 3, a mighty beast of an arcade fighting controller with a fancy programmable touch panel. The PS4 version of the Fighting Edge is still a beast, but it trades the gimmicky touchscreen for brushed aluminum. It looks good. It feels even better.
When there’s no usable television in sight or your eyes just aren’t good enough to share the Nintendo Switch’s 6.2 inch screen with a friend, a portable gaming monitor is a nice thing to have around.
Hori is making a Dragon Ball FighterZ-branded fight stick. That’s according to a listing on Amazon Japan which shows a ship date of February 1, 2018. It looks to be the Real Arcade Pro.N Hayabusa model but with some sweet Goku Super Saiyan Blue art on top. It’ll be compatible with PS4, PS3, and PC.
Sony has licensed Japanese peripheral company Hori to make a new controller for the PS4 called the Mini Wired Gamepad. It’s designed for kids (and adults with small hands, I guess?), and I am very upset it wasn’t called the Kidsaxis.
Since the Nintendo Switch launched earlier this year, mine has rarely seen the inside of the TV dock. Now that Pokken Tournament DX is here, that’s changed. I need that USB port for Hori’s Pokken Tournament Pro Pad DX—and not just for Pokémon battles.
If you like multiplayer, you’ve probably heard all about how you should be playing with a wired connection. The Switch, like the Wii U before it, doesn’t even have an Ethernet port—but you can fix that.
Just about any headset you can use with a phone or tablet can be used with Nintendo’s Switch app to chat with friends during rounds of Splatoon 2. You don’t have to pick up Hori’s official licensed headset, but there are a couple of reasons you might want to.
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.
