Wii Classic Controller Pro Coming To North America

Classic Controller Pro Despite beginning its life in Japan with an unknown international future, Nintendo of America has announced that the Wii Classic Controller Pro is coming to North America in April for a mere $19.99 alone or with Capcom's upcoming Monster Hunter Tri for $49.99.  Some say that the Pro version of the Classic Controller is the version of the Wii peripheral that should have launched in the first place, but better late than never, I always say.  Here's some of the press release in which the important difference between amateur and Pro models are detailed: 

The new Classic Controller Pro includes a second row of shoulder buttons and ergonomically friendly grips. The Classic Controller Pro plugs directly into the Wii Remote™ controller, and until now, has been available only in the Japanese market.

The sad thing is that ordinarily I would upgrade to the new model, but I hardly use my existing Classic Controller anymore as it is, so I see myself holding off on this one for quite some time.  Still, it's nice to see it coming overseas after all.
