PDP to Release GameCube Inspired Wii U Controller on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Peripherals gurus PDP (Performance Designed Products) are launching a new GameCube controller.

Known as a the "Wired Fight Pad", the accessory is planned to work on both the Wii U and Wii, plugged into the extension port on a Wii Remote in order to work, much like the Classic Controller. The device will only be compatible with games that support the Classic Controller, however.

The Wired Fight Pad is expected to make its debut during this year's E3 Expo, with multiple character variations available - including Mario, Yoshi and Princess Peach themed designs.

The company are aiming to launch the controller along Super Smash Bros. for Wii U during the holiday season at around $24.99.

Will you opt for the GameCube-inspired controller for Super Smash Bros for Wii U?

You can bet that if it's made to resemble a GC controller, it's made to appeal to SSB players Smilie

This should work as a WiiU Pro controller, not a classic controller. :/
