Rumor: Wii U Pro Controller Battery, Backward Compatibility Info

by on October 16, 2012

You can add this to the rumor mill if you want, but according to both Amazon and Gamestop’s websites, the Wii U Pro Controller will apparently have 80 hours of battery life on a single charge.  In addition, if we’re to believe both sites, the controller will not be backward compatible with Wii games.

Both sites have the identical description, which states:

Your games, your way. However you think of your gaming style-hardcore, old school, or purely nostalgic-the Wii U Pro Controller puts you in the game. Designed for accessibility and extended gameplay comfort, the Wii U Pro Controller features the dual analog sticks and ergonomic button layout that you’ve come to expect, as well as a rechargeable battery that can last up to 80 hours on a single charge. The Wii U Pro Controller can be used for playing a variety of games-from packaged games at retail to downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop. Look on the back of Wii U game packaging to see which games use the Wii U Pro Controller. Not compatible with the Wii system or games.

Nintendo hasn’t specifically released this information but don’t be surprised if this description is accurate.
