Today, PDP has announced that they will be making a gamecube inspired controller for the Wii and Wii U. They are dubbing it “The Wired Fight Pad”, and it will release around the same time as Smash Bros. Wii U for $25.
This controller will plug into a wii remote and work like a classic controller. Naturally, it will work with both Wii and Wii U titles that are compatible with the classic controller or classic controller pro.
PDP is known for its unique “afterglow” controllers, and the wired fight pad will have a cool design as well. However, instead of lighting up, these controllers will feature famous Nintendo characters, like Mario, Yoshi, or even Princess Peach.
While it’s disappointing that the cool controller below won’t be a reality, it’s nice to know that those who can’t smash without gamecube controllers aren’t forgotten.
So what do you think? Are you excited about this announcement, or does something about it press your buttons? I know quite a few people will be disappointed that the controller has to plug into a Wii Remote, as opposed to being like the Wii U Pro controller.
