Nintendo of Japan has announced the (re)release of the classic wired GameCube controller, now molded from Wii-like white plastic. Priced at 2,000-yen (~$20), the controllers will arrive in Japanese retail outlets this month. Source: Nintendo While surfing the Nintendo (JAP) website, I've chanced upon the above news. Now, to wait for Nintendo to release the item in Japan. I can't wait for the GC controllers as i find the 3rd party GC controllers aren't on par with Nintendo's GC controllers.
