Nintendo shows off Cube keyboard

Phantasy Star Online players should be able to chat away happily

Apart from promoting its soon-to-be-released wireless controller, WaveBird, and its mobile monitor peripheral, Nintendo also used E3 to show off a prototype of its new keyboard / controller hybrid, intended for use with games like Phantasy Star Online Episodes I and II. Reports suggest that the controller is the same as the normal GameCube controller, with a miniature keyboard between the left analogue stick / D-pad and the C-stick / action buttons. The controller will be released in Japan, but Nintendo has yet to confirm whether the controller will be made available elsewhere. Related Feature - Nintendo hops on the mobile bandwagon
