Wii Launches New Classic Controller

Nintendo has a tradition to launch peripherals along with the release of its own software. Plastic wheel was launched with the release of Mario Kart Wii and balanced board was launched with the release of Wii Fit. Nintendo also introduced Wii MotionPlus along with the release of Wii Sports Resort.

But this time Wii has gone to Capcom for the release of the new Classic Controller Pro. Nintendo has come up with a new Classic Controller which looks like the early controllers of gaming consoles. The new Classic Controller comes bundled with the copy of recently released Monster Hunt Tri. Featuring few tweaks to the original classic controller, the Monster Hunt Tri supports various functions which include the original classic controller and the WiiMote and Nunchuk combo. Apart from supporting such functions, Monster Hunt Tri will also make use of Wii Speak through the help of which players can communicate via voice chat while playing the game online.

Traditionally, Nintendo launches new peripherals alongside its own software. Mario Kart Wii came bundled with a plastic wheel, Wii Fit launched with the balance board, and Wii Sports Resort introduced players to the Wii MotionPlus. But for the new Classic Controller Pro, Nintendo has turned to Capcom.

Being the one of the top selling release, The Monster Hunter series has gathered an amazing response in Japan. Also with nearly 600,000 units sold in the first week, the Wii release has already become the top third party selling PSP release.

Nintendo being the main publisher of the best selling gaming titles on Wii and the gaming titles that are able to gather a good amount of attention on the Internet, we hope that the new controller along with the Monster Hunt Tri will be able to gather the same response.
