More images are now available for the Super Smash Bros. Hori Battle Pad for Wii U with Turbo, courtesy of Amazon. The pack shots of the Luigi and Mario colors are shown for the first time, unveiling that the officially-licensed controllers can be used with the Wii as well. Both gamepads require the Wii Remote to connect to the current and last-gen systems. Preorder the two right now on Amazon – Hori Battle Pad for Wii U (Luigi Version) with Turbo and HORI Battle Pad for Wii U (Mario Version) with Turbo.
We get a much closer look at the L, R, ZL and ZR shoulder buttons. These were adjusted to allow for shorter strokes, which should make input much faster. Check out the new photos for the controller below this paragraph.
The other features include bidder directional pad and three turbo settings. Otherwise, it has the same button placement and shape as the first-party Gamecube controllers.
The Battle Pad is designed mainly for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. So it should come at no surprise that the two are releasing on the same day on the 21st of November. Reserve your copy of the videogame right now with this link.
The controller should also support other games that use the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. Most Virtual Console games are compatible too.
