With the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros., Nintendo has partnered with Performance Design Products to create a new controller inspired by the GameCube controller that can be used in fighting games. Compatible with both the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii U, the new controller has been dubbed the Fight Pad.

On top of being useful for fighting games, the Fight Pad can be used with any Wii or Wii U game that supports the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. The Fight Pad can also be used to play some Virtual Console games, but the specific list of titles has not been detailed as of yet.

The final product will feature characters such as Mario, Yoshi, and Princess Peach with each controller priced at $24.99.
