Pokkén Tournament DX hits the Switch soon and peripheral maker Hori is producing a special controller for it - and you'd be forgiven for thinking it looks somewhat familiar.

That's right, the shiny new Pokkén Tournament DX Controller is in fact the exact same pad that the company released alongside the Wii U version of the game. The only difference is that it now sports a funky Switch logo and comes Switch-branded packaging. 

The pad is wired so it will only work in docked mode, and it lacks the Home and Capture buttons seen on standard Switch controllers.

We already know that the original Wii U pad will work just fine on the Switch version of the game, so if you've already got that one, there's little reason to upgrade - unless you just have to have that Switch logo on the unit.

While we've got your attention, you might want to check out Alex's impressions of the original Wii U version of the pad:

Will you be picking one of these up, or do you still have the Wii U-focused original? Let us know with a comment.
