PDP has just announced that Metal Mario, Zero Suit Samus, and Toad will be joining the lineup of Wired Fight Pads for Wii U, making them the newest additions to the Classic Controller line inspired by the original GameCube controller. The Wired Fight Pad line also features fan-favorite Nintendo characters such as Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach, Luigi, Link, Samus, Donkey Kong, and Wario.
The third wave of Wired Fight Pads for Wii U includes Metal Mario, which offers a metallic design and the Mario “M” character mark. The Zero Suit Samus-themed Wired Fight Pad presents another impressive twist, featuring a soft touch metallic top housing. Finally, the Toad Wired Fight Pad is inspired by the Toad Wii Remote Plus.
The Wired Fight Pad is licensed by Nintendo and designed for use with the Wii and Wii U consoles. The Wired Fight Pad plugs directly into the Wii Remote. Players can use it with Wii and Wii U titles that support Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro functionality.
The Wired Fight Pads will have an estimated SRP of $24.99 and are now available for pre-order at GameStop and Amazon. Both the Toad and Zero Suit Samus-themed controllers are available exclusively at GameStop in the United States.
