The recently announced Battle Road Victory title will come with a special controller.

Square Enix has announced that their Dragon Quest spin-off title Battle Road Victory (based on an arcade card battle game) will receive a special controller courtesy of Hori.

The controller simulates the controller layout seen in the arcade version. The sword in the middle of the controller has the same function as the arcade version: when pressed, players unleash a special attack. The controller connects to the Wii Remote and operates under the Classic Controller options, confirming that the title will feature multiple control schemes.

The special controller has been priced at ¥12,800, or around $130 dollars in the US.

I like this DQ Spinoff Port controller better than any Classic Controller PS2 Clone Pro better than the real Talkback thread.

Eh...that looks weird.

NinGurl69 *hugglesMay 11, 2010

It has dual-anal controls.  Regular gamers love this sort of thing, right?

TJ SpykeMay 11, 2010

That looks pretty cool. Not $130 cool, but still nice.

NinGurl69 *hugglesMay 11, 2010

Nicer than SMove at the same price.

I doubt this controller will be released here. Dragon Quest itself isn't very popular here, so no one would buy something like this.

the sword is the joystick? Move over RE4 chainsaw controller.

It's actually just a button.

note the joysticks...

It's a card-battle game.  I don't think character movement comes into play.

NinGurl69 *hugglesMay 11, 2010

But you're dying to use it for Monster Hunter, or even New Super Mario.

I believe there is an exploration section if I am not mistaken.

there's also a d-pad in the bottom left corner...

ShyGuyMay 11, 2010

I didn't even notice those tiny things on the base. I thought the scale was off for the Wii remote, but that thing is HUGE.

MaryJaneMay 11, 2010

lmao i thought the joysticks were those two big balls by the sword i just 'noted' the joysticks thought they were buttons before, and i also just noticed you can click the picture to make it bigger and better see the detail lol

ShyGuyMay 11, 2010

Oh yeah, MJ is back! Welcome back, dude.

StratosMay 12, 2010

For a second I thought it was April 1st again. Wow.

NWR PAX East 2011 Challenge: Monster Hunter Tri "Monster Take-Down" using Ðragon Quest controller.
