Oh yeah, all Nintendo Wii fans alike love how we are able to purchase old school games off of the Wii Store…but many of us fumble with the regular old classic controller, or the old school Gamecube controller.
I myself use the Gamecube controller, only because I refuse to buy something that already have. Using the classic Gamecube controller though with the arcade style games can sometimes be annoying and feel weird; especially for those who remember playing the game with joysticks.
However coming soon to a store near you Nintendo is releasing the Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick. This arcade stick is designed to match up with your Nintendo Wii’s modern look, while bringing home a nostalgic old school joy stick look to the system.
The Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick has 8 buttons on the right side of the pad for you to pound away at, while on the left side of the controller sits an old school joystick that will rotate 360 degrees. The top of the Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick are buttons that when pressed will bring you back to the Nintendo Wii’s main page. The other buttons allow you to pause, and select. The buttons are basic, and do not need an explination on to work them.
The Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick will allow you to play arcade style games on it. These games can be downloaded from the Wii shopping menu.
Not only that, but the Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick can also be used in place for games that call for the classic controller!
The Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick connects to the Wii controller as a Wii remote extension. It has auto fire switches for 20 times more button power, and will make virtual console games feel exactly the way they once did!
Over at www.gamestop.com they are not selling this one until freakin November, but with a little hunt and pecking around the internet I was able to locate a site selling them for $49.99. The Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick can be purchased now over at www.1sourcegaming.com, however I would email them for availability before you quickly place an order.
Rocking it old school with the new Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick is a must have for any video game/Nintendo Wii fan. I cannot wait to get my paws on the Hori Wii Digital Arcade Stick; I cannot wait to see how it plays Pac-Man!
