Wii ‘Classic Controller Pro’ bulks up, adds more buttons and gripaciousness

classic_pro_photo Playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl with the standard Wii Classic Controller is okay, but it kinda feels small in my manly hands – like I’m playing video games using a granola bar or a harmonica or something. I’m sure it’s just fine for younger generations but I might have to gravitate to the Classic Controller Pro when it comes out this summer.

It appears to be a bit more substantial, with some added hand grips, more shoulder buttons, and a spacing-out of the analog thumb sticks. Pricing and exact availability are unknown but I bet it’ll run $25 to $30. I shudder to think how much I’ve actually spent on my Wii system with all these extra controllers and plastic gun-shaped doodads.
