We're no strangers to Hori's Split Pad Pro, having sampled both the original version and some of its more recent re-skins, but the Japanese accessory maker has given the product a fresh push in 2022 to coincide with the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

That's a big shame considering how much better gyro controls make the experience.
