You may remember that last month the accessory manufacturer Hori revealed that it will launch one Monster Hunter Rise edition of their popular Split Pad Pro controls. Previously, it was only confirmed for Japan, but now a new Amazon list says that it will be launched in North America on April 26.
The Split Pad Pro costs $ 59.99 and is only usable in handheld mode, but offers a good option for gamers who find Nintendo’s standard Joy-Con a bit. also small. Also included are a few extra buttons on the back of the controllers (which can be assigned to other buttons you prefer) and a turbo function.
Here is the official product description:
