All Aboard! The Nintendo Switch Is Getting A Train Controller In Japan 2

We’ve seen racing wheels for car simulators, and joysticks for flight simulators, but did you know you can also get controllers for train simulators? Over in Japan, there’s a new controller coming out that will allow Switch owners and train enthusiasts to take their train simulations to the next level.

The device is compatible with Densha de Go!! Hashirou Yamanote Sen – the latest entry in a long-running train simulation series that started out in Japanese arcades in 1996. The product will retail for about $134 USD in Japan and will be available starting 8th August.

This controller aims to realistically recreate what it feels like to operate a train – with levers and internal gears, and also includes all the necessary Switch buttons to navigate game menus. Basically, get ready for someone to speed run something else with it.

Right now it seems this product is a Japan-only release, so if you are interested in owning something like this, you’ll probably have to import it. Do you own any unique Switch controllers yourself? Maybe a drum or a racing wheel? Leave a comment down below.
