On Tuesday, Nintendo announced on Twitter that it will be releasing a pair of pastel pink Joy-Con controllers alongside Princess Peach: Showtime! on March 22. These will be sold for a limited time at the Nintendo Store and select retailers. Although the price has not been specified, it is likely to be around $80, the standard Joy-Con pair going rate.

This set of pastel pink Joy-Cons pays tribute to Princess Peach. Nintendo previously released a pastel pink left Joy-Con, paired with a pastel yellow one, so the new pair appears to be entirely new. Engadget reached out to Nintendo for confirmation about the shade of pastel pink in Peach’s set.

Princess Peach: Showtime! is a pseudo-platformer where Princess Peach takes center stage in a story about saving a theater from the villainous Grape and the Sour Bunch. In the game, Peach can wield a ribbon as a weapon, borrowed from the theater’s guardian, Stella. She can also use her theater quick-change abilities to transform into different characters, giving her fun power-ups to counter those of Mario.

Princess Peach: Showtime! is available for preorder now from Nintendo and Amazon, with the game and the pair of pastel pink Joy-Cons set to arrive on March 22. You can watch the game’s latest trailer below.
