In time for the release of Super Smash Bros. 4, players will have another option for which controller they use to command their favorite fighter. According to Polygon, PDP, a popular manufacture of video game accessories, has announced that they have partnered with Nintendo to create a Gamecube inspired controller for the Wii U, named the “Fight Pad”. The controller will be an officially licensed Nintendo product.
The Wii U Fight Pad’s release will coincide with Super Smash Bros. 4’s launch and feature an entire line of Nintendo characters, including Mario, Yoshi and Princess Peach. The Fight Pad plugs into the Wii Remote’s accessory port and will work with both Wii and Wii U games that use the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro, including some Virtual Console titles. The Fight Pad will retail for $24.99 USD.
An image of the controller has not yet been released.
