Bandai Mousou Mini Controllers Play Your Arcade Favorites, but Not Really

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 2, 2010


How’d you like to take some of your favorite classic arcade games and carry them around on your keychain? What if I told you that you couldn’t actually see what you were doing, but just hear it? Well that’s pretty much what you get with these new mini controllers.

Bandai’s new Mousou mini arcade controllers don’t let you see the on-screen action, but they do let you play all of the sounds of the arcade originals.

Each button press and combo works just like the originals – just without the benefit of a screen. The initial batch of Mousou controllers includes three arcade classics: Xevious, Street Fighter II and Famista (a classic Namco/Nintendo baseball game from Japan).

Check ’em out in action in the video clips below, and just imagine the glorious old 8-bit graphics that you’re missing out on.

The guys over at Japan Trend Shop are taking pre-orders for the Bandai Mousou controllers in sets of three, including all three games, and your choice of three different SFII character sets: Ken/E Honda/Guile, Ryu/Blanka/Sagat, or Dhalsim/Balrog/Chun-Li. The set of three is selling for $44 (USD) and they should start shipping on March 20.

If you’re fortunate enough to live in Japan, you can order them individually at the Bandai shop for just 888 Japanese Yen (appx. $10 USD) each.
