The Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII DualShock Controller

By Spencer . September 18, 2013 . 1:55pm

Not to be confused with the red Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII controller from HORI, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia made a Lightning Returns DualShock 3 controller.




The controller is an Asia region (Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, etc.) exclusive. You can purchase the controller as a standalone item or in a bundle with the Chinese/Korean version of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Unlike other Asian versions, Lightning Returns will not have English subtitles. Sony will release this on November 21, the same day Lightning Returns comes out in Asia.

  • Ava1on

  • Matthew

    • Wait what

      Why is you wanting a controller a bad thing…?

      • Arcana Wiz

        maybe cause it wont come here?

        • Wait what

          They can always import it. :)

  • Pdugna

    Controllers from other countries work on other ps3s right?

    • 果林

      yes it should.

  • Syltique

    Damn, I want that.

  • Eddie

    Looks decent, maybe they should have chose white instead of black for the base, and changed the other white color to a light gold or something.

  • NightzeroAX

    Welp i aint getting the Hori now.

  • AuraGuyChris

    It sure will dual shock people.

  • Bobby Jennings

    oh my god…this will go hand in hand with my Tales of Xillia 2 controller…

    • haku67

      sexy collection :D

      • Bobby Jennings

        Thanks! Still working on it.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      High key brag

      • Bobby Jennings

        Why you stalking me Tager? Go back to SaiyanIsland. :P

        • TheGameTagerZ

          Lol that’s not the only place I go to haha. Nice collection though I’m jealous! I used to play a lot of Vesperia when I had my Xbox.

          • Bobby Jennings

            Don’t worry I kid. That’s just where I know you from. And thanks a lot!

    • TheExile285

      how are the Vita tales games and Abyss on 3DS

      btw, nice collection. i jelly

      • Bobby Jennings

        the Vita tales games are pretty good. They lack in some areas though(such as the menus, graphics somewhat)which is kinda lame seeing as how this is the Vita they’re using. Tales of the Abyss on 3DS I havent even played. I just bought it to add to my collection, beat the game like 3 times on my PS2.

        • Bobby Jennings

          (Also this picture is before Xillia came out in the US….maybe I need to update my pic.)

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        Tales Of The Abyss is basically the PS2 version but portable. However… the 3D is absolutely horrendous. Picture the 3D game equivalent of Clash Of The Titans 3D and you’d have a great idea of how it looks (The layers aren’t 100% separated and characters lack dimension).

    • Suriel Cruz

      You sir! You just needed a motive. LOL!
      Awesome collection!

      • Bobby Jennings

        I really did! Thanks!

    • Pdugna

      i recognize every game there except the middle one right below persona 4 golden…Gold edition….I want that soo much…

      • $1392518

        Ex Troopers. Capcom’s lost planet spin off that plays like megaman legends with a monster hunteresqe twist.

    • Arcana Wiz

      Jeeellly….. great collection.

    • Tristan Diaz

      WOW! This is truly awesome!

    • holy mother of awesomeness, nice collection you got there

    • Notquitesure?

      Drool worthy, wish that vesperia would be english.

      • Bobby Jennings

        Well I still have the 360 one

    • Raltrios

      …Is it okay if I hate you? …Just a little bit?

      • Bobby Jennings

        Sure. :D

  • new_tradition

    I like it more than that red one, but I kind of wish they did more designs with it.

  • Eh.

  • TheExile285

    Looks like it should be an inFAMOUS 2 controller lol

  • Aoshi00

    I like the countdown clock and lightning, now this is a real lightning returns controller, the hori one s design doesn’t have much to do with the game… They should release more first party LE dual shock 3 in the us..

  • Arcana Wiz

    actually i like this one, and i like the subtle hints, the fans know exctly what it means and othe rpeople think it’s cool. Loved it.

  • Damarius Wingfield

    NEW TROPHY FOR MY WALL(Mordecai from Borderlands).

  • Guest

    I have a question about the siliconera website, why does that car advertisement keep popping up?

    and the Disqus doesn’t load all the time either

  • maruhadapurpurine

    does it come with different outfits for me to play with? will there be DLC so I can change it?

  • Kitestwinblades

    This controller kind of makes me want another shadow hearts game.
    Its that ring around the d-pad (◎_◎)

  • WhyWai

    slow poked… But no Jap Voice with End sub this time? aww…. guess i’ll have to wait for US release then…

  • artemisthemp

    Hopefully Play-asia will have this Controller
