Enjoy authentic arcade action at home! Designed by HORI, the same designers of the official Pokken Tournament arcade cabinet controller, the Pokken Tournament Pro Pad is a limited edition controller design exclusively for use with Pokken Tournament for the Wii U. This wired USB pad is ergonomic, comfortable, responsive and super effective for controlling your favorite Pokemon in Pokken Tournament battles. USB wired (9.8ft) connection is tournament legal. Note that due to software design, Player One must always use the Wii U GamePad for local battles. Controller is only compatible with Pokken Tournament for Wii U and will not function properly with other game titles. NOTE: Please press “Start” on the Pokken Pro Pad at main title screen to activate as main controller.
This is a pretty decent controller if you don't mind having a cord (people will trip over it though so be careful). It works with any game I've tried on the Switch that doesn't require analog sticks. Two of the trigger buttons have been moved next to Select and Start buttons which can be a problem with some games. The Mummy Demastered for example is unplayable with this controller because of the new button placement. This probably won't be a problem in any game that lets you customize the buttons. Too bad The Mummy has no such option.
I got this so my son could play video games on my emulator with me. Yes, it is compatable with RetroPie. Plus, he loves that it's Pikachu.
Works great for Pokken Tournament and also works really well for Sonic Mania on Switch.
