Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now only a little more than four months from release and these themed controllers will be coming along with it.
For the more dedicated and passionate gamers among you, a controller is more than just something you pick up and start playing with. Its design and feel can be make or break. When there are two or more consoles to choose from when it comes to spending your hard-earned money, the controller can be one of the factors that plays into your final decision.
The original Xbox controllers for instance. They were big, chunky, larger than anything any of its rivals were sporting at the time. Then there's the Nintendo 64 controller. Again innovative and different from anything else that had come before it, but one that most of its users still talk about today and wish that other consoles had followed in its footsteps.
When it comes to Nintendo, it likes to change up its controllers quite a lot. That's because each of its consoles is very unique and requires that. The controllers for the Wii and the Switch are very different, but despite the need for that when it comes to certain games, Nintendo fans long for the classic Gamecube controller. If this sounds like you then we have some extremely good news, courtesy of Performance Designed Products.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will hit shelves later this year, and PDP is bringing some cool Gamecube-inspired controllers to go along with it. They will come in three designs, Mario, Pikachu, and Zelda. Since their main purpose will be to play the newest chapter in the Smash Bros. saga, they will even come with a detachable C-stick just to make you really feel like you've traveled back in time.
The majority of us who are Smash Bros. fans began playing the game on Melee, the Gamecube edition of the game. That's why most of you are likely breathing a sigh of relief that these Gamecube controllers will be coming to the Switch. Learning the controls for a new Smash Bros. game on a new console will be a chore, but now it's a chore that we don't have to deal with.
