Nintendo unveils new Wii controller

But "no plans" for European release.

Nintendo has revealed a brand new controller for the Wii but has "no plans" for a European release, a spokesperson told Eurogamer.

It looks like the old Classic Controller with added legs (hand-grips) and shoulder buttons. Essentially, the Pro looks more like a PlayStation pad.

Specifically, the Pro gains 32.5mm vertically, 10.3mm horizontally and 29mm in depth. Fatty.

There's no word on whether this will head West nor how much the Pro will cost. We'll check with Nintendo.

But we won't hold our breath, as the GameCube Wii Controller never made the move outside of Japan.

Old and new: amateur and pro.
