An extremely rare Nintendo GameCube prototype controller with a Legend of Zelda design has just been sold on eBay for US$2,500 after originally being put up for US$6,000. Nintendo and NubyTech had originally licensed this product back when Twilight Princess was about to be released and the controller was planned to be part of a pre-order bundle. Unfortunately, demand for the controller was very low so the idea was scrapped and only two are known to be remaining.

The controller would have originally come in this special Zelda designed box too which may seem big but the art style looks very well detailed. According to NubyTech, the product was very expensive to make and was also a reason as to why the project didn’t turn into a reality.
