Game Zone – I’m not one to obsess about special and limited editions of things, let alone controllers. However, Australia might have one of the coolest Wii U Pro contollers up for pre-order, that has me contemplating a purchase.
What makes me sad about the entire listing is how non-special it sounds. There is no product description, no hint at it being a limited or special edition, nothing. Just a simple listing, calling it the Wii U Controller – SNES Version.
From the picture, you can see that the controller still retains the shape of the Wii U Pro controller, but looks as if a tiny version of a SNES gamepad was embedded into it. EB Games is listing the release date a November 30th, which happens to also be the Australian release date for the Wii U.
We’ve reached out to Nintendo for a comment to see whether this will just be exclusive to Australia or if we’ll be able to get our hands on one of these here in the US. As a side note, if they won’t be for sale in the US, chances are these controllers might end up being a prize on the Club Nintendo Website.
