This controller makes your Switch a perfect train simulator

Now all you need is one of those cute, little hats.

There are simulators for just about anything nowadays, whether you want to fly a plane, or go on a date, or um, be a goat? But what we’re about to show you is something special — something just for the train people out there.

Introducing: Zuiki’s Dedicated One Handle Controller For Nintendo Switch

This controller is designed specially for Densha de Go!!, a classic Japanese train simulator game ported to both the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 last December.

According to Zuiki, the controller aims to replicate the feeling of operating a real train, and uses a one-handle system for braking and accelerating. A gear system allows the player to lock the handle in place and easily operate the train without visually referencing the controller.

The good news is, this controller — which is apparently the first Densha De Go! controller in 14 years — looks pretty amazing. The bad news is that it’s only currently available in Japan.

$134

For anyone in the position to buy this controller, it'll go on sale August 8th and cost about 14,850 yen.
