Hori have continued to produce some of our favorite Switch accessories both overseas and in Japan, covering the likes of Mario, Splatoon, and Animal Crossing. Their latest batch though is all about Pokémon, bringing Pikachu and friends together on familiar products from the company. This includes controllers, cases, and more to be available to order starting next month.

Per their official press release, here’s what we have to look forward to:

Of these, we’re fans of the Split Pad Pro and Hori Pad as alternatives to Nintendo’s own controllers. Just remember that any controllers will lack features such as HD Rumble and NFC reading, and either need to be connected to the Switch or wired to the dock.

While no specifics were given, some of these will be available as soon as next month, November 2020.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
