Performance Designed Products – in partnership with Nintendo – is developing the “Wired Fight Pad”, a new line of Classic Controller that takes inspiration from the GameCube controller.

The Wired Fight Pad is compatible with the Wii U as well as the original Wii. It plugs directly into the Wiimote’s extension connector and can be used with games that support the Classic Controller, the Classic Controller Pro, and some Virtual Console games. Mario, Yoshi, and Princess Peach are among the fan-favorite characters featured by the Wired Fight Pad.

PDP will release its product this holiday season for $24.99.
