Today Square Enix released a bunch of relevant information on the upcoming JRPG Dragon Quest XI, and Japanese controller manufacturer Hori jumped on the bandwagon with its own announcement.

The controller reproduces the series’ iconic slime monster, which means that its grip comfort is definitely to be demonstrated, but hey, it’s a slime. What’s not to love?

It will launch in Japan day and date with the game, on July 29th, and will cost 9,980 yen plus taxes, which translates in a whopping $98, including taxes.

The odd-shaped contraption measures 145 mm X 145 mm X 124 mm and weighs 280 g, and comes with a micro-USB cord and a dedicated pedestal to be used as a decorative item. It does not include light bar, headphone jack, vibration, motion sensor and speaker.

Since pictures say more than a thousands word, check out this slime-tastic controller in the gallery below.
