Along with the Wii U Gamepad, Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata also announced the Wii U Pro Controller at last night’s Pre-E3 Broadcast. The Pro Controller will be launched along with the Wii U to allow more advanced players to feel at home.

The Pro Controller looks identical to the Xbox 360’s controller with dual analog sticks, a directional pad and an A,B,X,Y button set. 

Nintendo did not confirm whether the Wii’s Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro would be compatible with the Wii U.

No further details were revealed on its availability.
