Nintendo has apparently ceased production for the Wii Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. According to Twitter user @kitroplious, a message from Nintendo popped up when purchasing the N64 version of Mario Golf on Club Nintendo. The Wii U owner said he was buying it to use on the current home console’s Wii mode.
Although Nintendo are no longer manufacturing the controllers, retailers will more than likely continue to hold stock for some time. Of course, the move to cease production could be a viable one from Nintendo, where the potential sales for the Wii U’s Pro Controller could increase in the long-run. Either way, if you’re looking to purchase a Wii Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro, it’s a prime time to do so.
