Remember the shiniest of Wii U controllers that we reported on last month, the one that is being made by PDP?
If not, it is a Mario themed fight pad that PDP is calling a Metal Mario controller and the good news is that you can now preorder it from Amazon!
It will cost you $24.99.
Get a taste of old school gaming with the officially licensed Wired Fight Pad for Wii and Wii U. Inspired by the original GameCube controller, the Wired Fight Pad offers a few updated features to enhance your gameplay. Benefit from the full size right thumb stick, dual shoulder buttons, large ZL and ZR triggers, and a soft touch back plate. Here you have the Metal Mario Wired Fight Pad. With a metallic design and the Mario “M” graphic-enjoy an impressive twist on Mario’s classic look.
So the first thing you should know about the Metal Mario controller is that it is officially licensed by Nintendo. Next up, all the games (whether they are for Wii or Wii U) that supported Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro are going to be compatible with this shiny little thing.
As you can see, the controller is a replica of GameCube design; what better fight pad could you ask for when playing Super Smash Bros on your Wii U?
Oh and last but not the least, the Metal Mario controller can be plugged straight into the Wii Remote.
As far as the official release date is concerned, PDP is going to release it on September 15, 2015. However, looking at how it is a unique product, it would be a good idea that you book one for yourself as soon as possible.
