This is how you will be playing Pokken Tournament

No joysticks, just this controller.

The arcade fighting game, Pokkén Tournament, will not be played with the typical arcade joystick – it will be played with a controller.

During the Famitsu livestream, Producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed plenty of information on the arcade fighter, like new characters, the first location testing schedule and the controller that you will be using.

When it comes to the character roster, Pikachu, Gardevoir, and Suicune have been confirmed as playable. Location testing will begin on January 30th and last until February 1st at Namco Lazona Kawasaki and Namco Umeda (in Japan).

As for the controller, well, here's how it looks:

With a controller like that it looks like it could hit consoles sooner than you'd think.
