Nintendo detailed pricing info for all the accessories to go alongside the December 8 launch of the Wii U console. The main thing you need to know is that the Wii U GamePad controller will cost ¥13,400, which is about $172 right now. Yes, really. The controller will also include an AC adapter, something we sadly have to make note of with Nintendo now. 

As for the Wii U Pro Controller, that will be available in both white and black for ¥5,040, roughly $65. There will also be a console stand for ¥315 ($4), and a GamePad charge stand for ¥1890 ($24).

And since the console is backwards compitable with Wii games, Nintendo will be offering a Wii bundle pack which consists of a Wiimote, Nunchuk, and sensor bar for ¥5,250 ($67). Wiimotes will be available to purchase in multiple colors still on their own for 3,800 ($48), while Nunchuks will be 1,800 ($23).

To be clear, this controller is NOT compatible with your existing Wii console. You need to own the new Wii U console. This is what you would pay if you wanted a replacement or second Wii U GamePad, because you sleep on mattresses made of money.
