Square Enix is releasing a Dragon Quest slime controller for the Nintendo Switch, much like they did for the PS4 in 2017.
Due out in September, this is a fully-functioning Switch Pro controller. On its flat side, it has triggers, thumbsticks, motion controls, Share and Home buttons, and a D-pad. What makes it stand out is its unusually large size, caused by being the underside of a giant, rubber-coated blue slime from Dragon Quest.
The controller’s bundle includes a cardboard stand that allows you to dock your Switch in front of a Dragon Quest treasure chest, and also place the iconic Dragon Quest III Hero’s circlet on the slime.
This controller will release in Japan for 10,778 yen (tax included) on September 27th, the same day as Dragon Quest XI Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch.
