Hyperkin To Test GCN Styled Pro Controller

Hyperkin Pro ControllerWhatever Hyperkin is doing right now they need to stop and go into full production of this controller right now. This is exactly the type of Pro Controller for Wii U I’ve been dying to have. I absolutely adore the GameCube Controller. I’ve routinely called it my favorite controller of all-time. Since the Wii U was first rumored people were making mock-ups of the controller and one that caught my eye was a white shelled controller with blue buttons that was designed exactly like the GameCube controller. I would buy this in a heartbeat and I’d get a “full” set of four just to have around.

This controller is going to be at EVO 2015. According to Hyperkin if the reaction is good they will move into full production. This is a fully wireless controller without the need for a dongle. It works exactly as a Pro Controller and is supported by every game that supports that input method. They have said that they will consider a wired verison and that they’ll be looking for player feedback while at EVO this year.

How much would you pay for such a beautiful controller? Well the projected price range is $30-40, which is about right for a Wii U Pro Controller and at least $20 less than a Dual Shock 4, for comparison.

Please, Hyperkin, whatever you do make this controller a reality.
