December 16, 2010 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

Those anticipating the upcoming release of Neo Geo classic titles on the PS3 and PSN on December 21st will likely enjoy this latest development. SNK is releasing a nostalgia-inducing controller fit for these games, and you can take a look at it after the jump.

As can be seen above, the controller includes a six-button layout along with two shoulder buttons, an analog nub/8-way d-pad, as well as Start, Select and a PS button for accessing the XMB. It should be noted that the controller connects via a USB cable. The controller goes for a list price of ¥3,129 ($37), and is currently only available in Japan. For those of you who cannot wait to get your hands on it, you could always import it from Play-Asia for a bit more money. The controller also works with regular computers, which is always a plus.
