Pikachu Gets His Own Cute Controller For Smash Bros On Wii U

pikachu_gamecube_controller_yello

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.

      1. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
