Last September, Hori released the Split Pad Pro for Switch, a larger take on the Joy-Cons dedicated to hardcore players using handheld mode. These set of fan-favorite non-wireless controllers launched to coincide with the release of Daemon X Machina, but never saw another release since.
This autumn, however, the Split Pad Pro is making a comeback with the help of Pac-Man, Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde. Hori announced today that a new retro arcade Pac-Man variant of the controller pair will be releasing later this year. Have a look below!
