Wii arcade fighter gamepad good for Hadokens and Shoryukens

At last count, there are something like six Street Fighter games available for download from the Wii’s Virtual Console section. And for that truly old-school experience, you need a truly old-school controller. The $15 dreamGEAR Arcade Fighter Classic Gamepad for Nintendo Wii looks like it may be able to scratch that itch.

It looks similar to the standard Super Nintendo controller except you’ve got a couple extra main buttons, which makes it similar to the six-button Sega Genesis controller that was released after the original three-button version. Whatever the case, you’ve got six main action buttons and two shoulder buttons to play with. Happy punching.
