Metal Mario, Toad, and Zero Suit Samus Super Smash Bros. Wii U Wired Fight Pads Coming Soon


Need a new controller to go along with all of that sweet new Super Smash Bros. DLC? Gaming accessory manufacturer Performance Designed Products (PDP) has you covered with three new additions to the company’s growing line of Nintendo GameCube-style Wired Fight Pad controllers for Wii and Wii U.

Adding to a controller line that already includes great character themes for Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Link, Donkey Kong, Samus Aran, Wario, and Yoshi, PDP has revealed new Fight Pads sporting Metal Mario, Toad, and Zero Suit Samus color schemes.

These look spectacular, don’t you agree? I especially have my eye on that Zero Suit Samus pad. That thing’s sexy as hell.

The three new controllers are scheduled to ship September 15th, and are now available to pre-order from GameStop for $24.99 each.

Although the Wired Fight Pads are aimed squarely at the Super Smash Bros. fan base, the controllers can be used for any Wii or Wii U game that supports the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro. We recommended them in our Gift Guides for Geeks & Gamers over the holidays.
