Some great looking third-party controllers — with that retro GameCube design that might just be the best ever seen in a controller — are coming your way just in time for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

According to GoNintendo, PDP will be releasing four new controllers — based on Link, Donkey Kong, Samus and Wario — on top of the previously announced Mario, Princess Peach and Yoshi controllers.

From the pictures, it appears as though they’ll have a shiny and smooth plastic casing. For those who prefer a grittier feel for better grip, this might not be your best choice.


However, the controllers are available at the decent price of $24.99 CDN, which is comparatively affordable in the games controller market. Besides, not every controller is made with our favorite video game icon in mind! (Sorry, Mario. Despite your desperate assertions to the contrary, it’s not you).

There appear to be no release details yet, but we’ll keep you updated. How many of you will be picking up the Smash Bros. bundle, complete with a Smash Bros. edition GameCube-style controller and adapter?
