Popular Japanese controller manufacture HORI is going to give Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII the dedicated controller treatment.

The chrome red controller will be released only for PS3 and will cost 3,980 yen (just north of 41 dollars), coming with the Lightning Returns logo and a “special cleaning cloth”. It will also be cabled only, no wireless version will be available. It will be released on November the 21st, the same day as the game.

You can see a picture of the controller and one of the box below. I don’t know about you, but personally I think the box looks better…
