I know, another videogame keychain sound board you’re asking yourself? I couldn’t agree more, but there’s one thing these Mousou Controllers do that makes them interesting… at least for Street Fighter II fans. The controllers are available for 5 different games, including Famista and Xevious versions that no one will care about, but it’s the 3 SF II versions that are kind of cool.
The blue controller includes sounds from Ken, Ed Honda and Guile, the red controller has Ryu, Blanka and Sagat and the black controller covers Dhalsim, Balrog and Chun-Li. Not only do they have authentic sounds from Street Fighter II and each character, but you can also use the same button combos as you would in the game to hear the sounds of a specific character’s moves. Now I was always a Mortal Kombat fan and still have a bit of muscle memory for Reptile’s repertoire, but I’m sure Street Fighter II fans should have no trouble remembering the combos for their own favorite characters.
A set of 3 Mousou Controllers, which includes Famista, Xevious and one Street Fighter II version (lame!) is available from the Japan Trend Shop for $51.
