It will also be bundled with a bonus A3-sized poster from Daisuke Ishiwatari for ¥15,540 (approx. $190). A variety of screenshots were also released showcasing the stick and the game’s conversion to Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network. Much of this information seems to be Japanese exclusive at the moment, so we’ll keep you informed as more details becomes available.
