Unofficial Wii U Pro Controller Looks Like a Hybrid

by on October 18, 2012
 

An unofficial Wii U Pro controller has begun popping up at some online retailers. The controller is said to replace the official Pro Pad’s D-pad and face buttons with a color scheme, and design more reminiscent of the SNES controller. The new look leaves the unofficial controller looking like an SNES controller dropped inside of an Xbox 360 controller.

The unofficial Wii U Pro Controller is made by accessory company Interworks Unlimited and is priced at $34.99 (roughly £30/€38). According to the product details, it’s universally compatible with Wii and Wii U, and is completely wireless. The image in this article is not an actual picture of the unofficial controller, only a photoshop representation of it.

      Yeah me too…looks pretty sick; though I wonder if having the face-buttons beneath the right analog stick will feel weird.

        If they were going to make a controller that -wasn’t- going to be a Wii U Pro controller and mislead people with the name (which is absolutely true, not a lie… read reviews by folks who bought one), why didn’t they just make a straight up wired Classic Controller and save themselves the trouble of adding in Infrared, Speakers, Gyro and other unnecessary stuff that bumped the price up? If they’d just made a regular, wired Wii Classic Controller that plugged into the bottom of the Wii-mote, it would’ve been cheaper… plus, not only would Wii owners be able to use it, but owners of the Mayflash Wireless Classic Controller to USB adapter (such as myself) would also be able to use it. If they made a good quality, part old flat CC / part SNES controller. I’d totally spend $25-35 for something like that.

        Please read my post on Interwork’s Facebook page… and please comment.
