And if you happen to be in the mood to grab yourself the new arcade-style controller from HORI for MEGA39’s/Mega Mix or Future Tone, but missed out on the last batch of preorders, you’ll probably be happy to hear that preorders are currently reopened on the HORI website until April 30th at 1:00 PM JST! Both controllers are priced at 38,478 JPY ($358 USD) each, and are expected to ship in the summer of 2020. To ship overseas, a proxy service is required.
Please note that there is a chance the Western versions of these games have not been updated with the software patches to support these controllers, and we’re awaiting a response from SEGA. Has anyone out there successfully used the PS4 controller with the Western version of Future Tone? Please let us know!
