PDP and Nintendo Announce Partnership to Bring a Compatible GameCube Controller to the Wii U

One thing that long time fans of the Super Smash Bros. series have been clamoring for is an official GameCube controller that works with the Wii U! By looks of it, the new GameCube controller will function like a classic controller and plug into a Wii remote, which means it could possibly be compatible with both vWii and and Wii U.

PDP, the leading third-party manufacturer of video game accessories. has announced that they have partnered with Nintendo to release a number of GameCube inspired controllers to coincide with the launch of Super Smash Bros on Wii U. The new line of controllers are wired and plug directly into the Wii Remote External Extension Connector. The Wired Fight Pad for Wii U will also feature iconic Nintendo characters and will retail for $24.99.

An official design has not been shown yet, but any thoughts/comments on the new controller?
