That controller doesn't really look that great - I don't see how it would be any better than a classic controller. I suppose it's mostly to appeal to fans of the arcade game who want the same experience in their homes. I wonder if the controller will be released outside Japan? I can't really see it appealing to people who haven't played the arcade version.

TSS_Killer pointed out to me that it is a different controller than the one used in the arcade but stylized to look like it. Honestly, I don't really see how this is any better either. Looks like a glorified NES controller.
