Currently only listed through EB Games Australia, the controller features the red, yellow, green and blue buttons and rounded contours of the classic SNES design embedded in the frame of a Wii U Pro controller with two analogue sticks and shoulder triggers.
The controller appears to be made by a third-party manufacturer rather than Nintendo itself, though no company is listed on the EB Games product page.
Third-party controllers are typically notorious for low build quality, but that is something many may be willing to overlook to replay their classic games with a more authentic controller.
The Wii U SNES Pro controller is scheduled to arrive November 30, the same day the Wii U launches in Australia. It is also listed for $48 Australian, $30 less than the official Nintendo Pro controller.
No availability has been confirmed for North America or Europe at this time, in part because no manufacturer has yet taken credit for creating the controller.
Nintendo recently confirmed that the Wii U will launch on November 18 in North America and November 30 in Europe with a basic model and Premium bundle.
The basic pack includes a white Wii U console with 8GB of memory, a Wii U gamepad, AC adapter and a HDMI cable.
The Premium set will offer the system in black with 32GB of memory, a copy of Nintendo Land, Wii U sensor bar, a gamepad charging cradle, stands for the gamepad and console and Nintendo Network Premium membership.
