I’ve mentioned Hudson’s Shooting Watch — the recently re-issued digital ‘trainer’ meant to help strengthen your game controller button-tapping muscles up to par with the hummingbird-fingered Takahashi Meijin — a few times before, and now the company has made it a good deal more affordable to own its little slice of Japan’s gaming history.

Coming just a few weeks after the release of an unofficial app that does much the same thing, Hudson has just released Shot Watch [iTunes link], an iPhone app that reproduces all of the functionality of the physical watch, and adds a few more ‘trix’ up its sleeve.

Like the traditional watch, your ultimate goal is to beat the mythical “16 button presses per second” of the master Takahashi, but now with a web ranking mode, you can see just how pathetic your attempts really are (I’m currently at 39 with a paltry 7.8). Check the official website for more information on its secret modes: I wouldn’t dare spoil the revealing sudoku puzzle that awaits you there.

Let us know your top rank once you’ve outpaced me!
