Waluigi might not be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC fighter yet, but at least he is apparently getting his very own Nintendo Switch controller courtesy of PowerA. The new Nintendo Switch controller is just the latest in PowerA's line of enhanced wireless controllers for the popular console and features a lovely yellow-and-purple color scheme with both Waluigi himself and his name making an appearance on the front of the controller. Assuming the product listing has the correct date, fans can get their hands on the new Waluigi Nintendo Switch controller starting June 4th. Pre-orders are live on Amazon now.
You can check out what it actually looks like below:
