Wii U to get Pro Controller

Written by David Stellmack

Wii U

Looks similar to 360 controller

Nintendo has confirmed that in addition to the Wii U GamePad it will also be offering a regular controller. The controller, interestingly enough, will be called the Nintendo Wii U Pro Controller. The news isn’t surprising, as Nintendo claims that they want to court hardcore gamers that have shunned the Nintendo in the recent past.

The Wii U Pro Controller bears a striking resemblance to an Xbox 360 controller and given the fact that the 360 controller is so popular, it is not surprising that Nintendo decided to emulate something close to the 360 controller design.

We don’t know much more about the Pro Controller yet, but we suspect that there actually isn’t much more to tell beyond the fact that the introduction of the Pro Controller this early in the game solidifies that Nintendo believes this is necessary at the start to attract hard core game players. The question is what games they will play; and we will learn more about that at the Nintendo press conference at E3.
