Nintendo to Release A GameCube Controller for Wii U?


If you’re not happy with the Wii U GamePad and miss the good ol’ days of the GameCube controller then you’re in luck.  Nintendo has partnered with Performance Designed Products to create a GameCube inspired controller for the Wii U.


The new controller, dubbed the Fight Pad, will reportedly be a plug-in extension for the Wii Remotes similar to the Classic Controller.  Set to debut in time for Super Smash Bros., the Fight Pad will have a $24.99 USD price tag with rumors of Mario, Peach, and Yoshi themed skins (poor Luigi).  It is also said that the controller will be supported wherever the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro are supported as well as some virtual console titles.

Super Smash Bros. is one of Nintendo’s franchises that appeals to new and hardcore gamers alike. An issue often brought to attention is that Nintendo does not have a large installment of games that appeal to hardcore gamers, but they do have one game that is a must have for many gamers. Super Smash Bros. 3DS is set to release sometime in Q3 of 2014 with Super Smash Bros. Wii U scheduled for Q4 2014.  Get ready to fight for fun and for glory.
