According to reports, KOEI has indicated that the beautiful classic controller pro (image inside) will be coming to the West as its fact sheet for Samurai Warriors 3 mentions the controller TWICE!

<blockquote>The Wii Classic Controller PRO, seen at right, is a thing of beauty, and one which a number of Wii gamers have wanted to get their hands on, at that. However, things have not looked so good for a Western release so far, as it has gone largely without note by Nintendo of America.

But could that soon change? It seems that Koei is under that impression, as their fact sheet for Samurai Warriors 3 mentions the coveted controller not once, but twice.

Siliconera points out that the fact sheet states once that "Making its debut exclusively on Wii, Samurai Warriors 3 takes total advantage of Nintendo's new Classic Controller Pro." It then repeats the mention on the features list, noting that one can "master the moves of samurai masters using the Classic Controller Pro." </blockquote>

Thats a nice looking pad, been looking to pick up a standalone version of the classic controller so as not to be stuck with the idiotic official one that has to be plugged into the wii controller. This may well be the one I go for :)

agreed
that looks awesome
lol its a playstation mock (not completely but button set and analogue setup is pure playstation)
and why wouldnt you, its been sony's controller for 3 generations for a good reason.
it works well.

they should bring back the N64 controller with an analogue stick that actually lasts.
the N64 controller was the best single analogue controller ever conceived

I'd really only buy this if it plugs into the Gamecube port. I think going in the direction of making the classic controller hang off the wiimote was a bad idea.

I've got a wireless Datel Retro controller I found at Best Buy that is a classic controller w/out the Wiimote. Works great. I also still have the blue classic controller I got from the MH Japan import I got. That sh1t is staying wrapped for now. I'd love to get the black one they included in the MHTri pack as well. Hopefully we'll get something like that when it is released outside of Japan next year.
