    This should probably go in Wii Hardware.

    I'll stick with my Gamecube Controllers. The game doesn't need anything past a regular Wiimote turned sideways, so who cares?

    Looks like it could actually work as a Wii Remote, that would be cool...

    Probably a gap so that the speaker can be heard.

    it looks cool, if it ever comes out here, my cousin will probably get it. especially if we can play SNES VCs with it. she's very nostalgic

    I doubt, that this will work with SNES games, since the SNES-controller had four buttons and two shoulder-buttons. But IMO the classic-controller itself looks pretty nostalgic, since it reminds me of the SNES-controller (obviously [​IMG])

    holy fucking shit those are badass

    It looks like it's a shell for a classic controller if you look at the wierd button placements and compare them to a wii remote

    It appears that Nintendo isn't the only one banking on New Super Mario Bros. Wii being a big hit this holiday season.

    GoNintendo received a press release from third-party peripheral manufacturer PDP earlier today,
    showing off the above New Super Mario Bros. Wii-branded controller shells, along with some NERF sports shells and a Wii Energizer All-in-One Charger.

    The product description reads as follows:
    Of course, not unlike what they've done with Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box and other items,
    GameStop is charging more than the above-listed MSRP of $9.99.

    As you can see in the image above, the shells are designed to come in colors representing Mario, Luigi, the blue Toad,
    the yellow Toad, and even Yoshi, in case there's a renegade in the group.

    Personally speaking, I'm just a little uneasy with how the 1 and 2 buttons on the shell overlap with the corresponding buttons on the Wii Remote.
    It reminds me a lot of the early complaints about the PlayStation Portable's square button not functioning properly,
    as it didn't quite overlay flush with the sensor beneath.

    On the other hand, I've never really had a problem with my PSP's square button, either, so that's probably a moot point.
    The only other thing is the diagonal orientation itself; I've always preferred the more natural setup used by the Super NES and the Nintendo 64,
    in which the buttons slant the opposite way.

    Why they chose to abandon that, I may never know. But even so, that doesn't seem like a deal breaker;
    I've had plenty of time to adjust with the GameCube, Game Boy Advance, Wii Classic Controller, and some DS titles.

    After all that, though, the question remains: do I really need this? Probably not; I'm quite comfortable just using the Wii Remote a la carté.
    Nonetheless, I know there are plenty of people who aren't as comfortable with a bare Wii Remote-as-an-NES-controller style,
    and this will probably be a good item for them. Heck, it might even make some people give Wario Land: Shake It!! a second glance.

    Doesn't mean I wouldn't like one, however.

    What's your verdict, folks? Will anyone be getting one of these?

    yup the button position is slanted the wrong way!
    imagine your wrist position while holding the 1 button to run and pressing/holding 2 to jump.

    its just a gimmick to boost sales. i never had any problems with sideways wiimote for punchout or resident evil remake.
