Images blatantly stolen from Gamestop.com. I regret nothing.


The original classic controller, while adequate for most games, suffered from some really inconvenient button placement (particularly the shoulder buttons),
a strangely placed cord (placed at the bottom of the controller rather than the top) and being awkwardly oval-shaped in an era of ergonomic controllers. The D-pad was also ill-suited to games that required quick and precise D-pad movements; fighting games and action games like Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden were significantly tougher to play than they were on their original platforms.

Fortunately, Nintendo addressed all of these problems with their new redesign, the Classic Controller Pro, which adds textured handle grips, moves the ZL and ZR buttons behind the normal L and R buttons, repositions the power cord, and has a much tighter D-pad, making quick directional motions much easier to pull off. The thumbsticks also feel much less awkward when you have something to grab onto with your other fingers, which is another plus.

An excellent redesign, and available at the same price as the older model. If you're into Virtual Console games and classic game compilations as much as I am, this is a must-have.
