Japanese gamers have had the fortunate time with this controller for awhile, so it makes sense for Nintendo to finally pony up and release a better version of their original classic controller release. The Classic Controller Pro is basically the same design but with grips on the bottom, a set of extra shoulder buttons on the back and a cord that comes out of the top instead of the bottom. (Yes, the Dreamcast controller had this but we forgive Sega from time-to-time).
But, that's not all folks. The Classic Controller Pro will be bundled with the release of Monster Hunter Tri for a price of $59.99, so you'll be able to test out this bad boy when the Japanese mega-hit is shipped. The controller will also be sold separately for a price of $19.99. No firm release date has been confirmed, but Gameshoe will announce it when we hear more.
