classic controller pro -

Nintendo's Japanese website has revealed the platform holder is readying a new controller for the Wii. The Classic Controller Pro is scheduled for a summer release, although its purpose isn't yet clear.

The new controller is based on the existing Classic Controller design, but adds some extra shoulder buttons, more space between the thumbsticks and new hand grips.

There's currently no word on pricing or indeed if the controller will be released outside of Japan.

That thing reminds me of a Playstation controller. Just look at the layout of the buttons, extra shoulders, and analogue...

I won't be buying, I probably won't use it for anything, but I highly doubt it'll make it here.

It IS the original classic controller! There are no new buttons, just relocated existing ones. Probably a nicer design all round, admittedly, but there is no need to get it if you already have one.

Sweet! I'm quite glad I didn't buy the original retro controller now.

No doubt it'll be a long wait for this one to appear on these cold shores.
