Peripheral manufacturer Hori has created an adorable Pikachu themed GameCube fight pad for the upcoming Super Smash Bros on the Wii U. Unfortunately to use it you need to plug it into your Wii Remote. However, it does come equipped with a rather handy turbo function that comes in three speed settings. If you are interested in importing then you can grab the Pikachu Hori Classic Controller for 3,434 yen.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Pikachu : Ha , eat your own heart out Mewtwo
really really hard
Goddamn sickr your edit is hilarious
Is this official?
Officially licensed by Nintendo? Yes, yes it is.
Then I wonder why MNN announced it first and not Serebii…
It was revealed a few days ago. MNN is a little late to the party…and im suprised that Serebii didn’t do a post about it :I
Hori is third party
hori is 3rd party but the battle pads they’re coming out with have the official Nintendo seal on em. Their products are just as good as 1st party though, never had a problem with hori
That is so creepy/unnecessarily busy, I don’t even.
“Unfortunately to use it you need to plug it into your Wii Remote.”?! I don’t need to buy the adapter! How can that be unfortunate?!
Because of the possibility of input lag I think. But this gives the controller easy compatibility with all games that use the classic controller.
Because then you need to buy a wii remote?

It’s a Wii classic controller, themed as a GCN controller. Nothing bad about that, though, those work for a lot of games!
There is something bad: input lag and having to set aside a Wiimote.
I’m pretty sure Wii motes don’t lag and this will work just fine. Lots of people use wii mote + nunchuck for competitive Smash play and there’s nothing wrong with it.
Haaa! Quite talking out your ass only plebs use wii numchuck/virtual console for actual competive play. I garuntee any pro would tell you they use a gamecube
Nazo would like to have a word with you.
Nah, never cared (or noticed) any lag, so’s not really a factor for my part.
Because the controller functions as a Wii Classic Controller. It’s just masquerading as a GameCube controller. It dust recognize soft presses of the shoulder buttons like actual GameCube controllers. Notice the buttons on the top and you’ll see what I mean.

Did the NGC controller always have 4 shoulder buttons?
No, it has three. This is actually a GCN-themed Wii classic controller!
Pretty much. Hori is also making Mario/Luigi GCN-themed Classic Controllers.
Also, Hori makes really good controllers.
It had three; the fourth is the Turbo button.
Why does japan get all the good shittaku mushrooms
The Applings have declared war…
Does it really matter? We all know that it’s gonna outsell whatever Nintendo makes because there are so many damn iPhone sheeps. Even if they made a $1000 phone with no significant improvements, people would still flock to that shit just because it has the Apple on the back.
Someone should feed of this cattle once and for all…
Agreed. These cattle never learn.
NO ONE WHO OWNS WIIU NEEDS TOBUY A WII REMOTE ,UNLESS THERE FUCKING RETARDS
EVERYONE WHOS A REAL GAMER ALREADY HAS AT LEAST ONE OR A NUMBER OF WII REMOTES
I HAVE 4 WII REMOTES 2 CLASSIC PAD PROS 1 PRO PAD CPL OF GAMECUBE PADS AND GAMEPAD
THATS WHAT WIIU IS ABOUT CURRECTAND PROPER GAMING NOT CAUAL COMPUTER BOXS LIKE LOL 4 AND DERP BONE
THERES NOTHING UNFORTUNATE ABOUT WII REMOTE THE DEICE S A MULTI FUNCTION WONDER
AND ANY SELF RESPECTING GAMER OWNS A NUMBER OF THEM
I STILL HAVE MY 2006 RELEASE DAY ORIGINAL WORKS LIKE NEW
YOU CAN ALSO USE DUALSHOCK 3 AND 4 VIA A WII REMOTE
LOL PS4 WITH ITS ONE CONTROLLER NOT NEXT GEN
I screamed “WHAT?!” when I saw the headline. But then I saw the box was in Japanese and it was basically a Classic Controller.
I ain’t even mad.
Uh…nice box, I guess. I was expecting the design to be similar to the Pikachu 3ds XL…kind of disappointing.
Does this comment… work?
Please respond to exchange
I was hoping it would be an official themed Gamecube controller like the smash one.
Why? You don’t trust Hori? XD
This is a waste of money.
Well it’s not for the Pokemon/Pikachu fans…
You’re right. It’s for idiots that don’t know what to do with their money.
What is the “turbo function that comes in three speed settings”?
It’s a dildo function for when you’re feeling lonely..
That’s another thing I didn’t like about the Wii. How you had to plug the classic controller etc. into the Wii remote. They should have all been wireless like the Wavebird and the Wii U Pro Controller.
Speaking of Pro Controller, I wish Nintendo would make special Pro Controllers in different colors and themes. Even though I wouldn’t be able to buy any except maybe one. Because official controllers are always freakin’ EXPENSIVE! $40.00 for just one controller is asinine.
If only I could use these on all Wii U games…. I’d get all 3 . Pikachu, Mario, Luigi controllers.
