However, the pads are also compatible with Wii and Wii U games that support the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro along with select Virtual Console releases. A Wii Remote is needed to connect the PDP controller to the Wii and Wii U.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is going to launch on the 21st of November. In addition to the PDP Wired Fight Pads, Nintendo will be releasing a Gamecube Adapter and a special edition Gamecube controller as another option to play the videogame.
