Aside from Chibi-Robo!, every game in the New Play Control! line of GameCube-to-Wii remakes has been brought over to North America... with the exception of Pikmin 2.

Take a closer look at PDP's GameCube-style controllers for Wii U

I think I'll be perfectly set with the GameCube controller adapter for Wii U, but PDP's line of GameCube-inspired controllers (known officially as "Wired Fight Pads") are another valid option. Courtesy of Amazon, we now have ...more
