Nintendo is setting an all-new games controller battery life record with Wii U’s pro controller, as, according to the official product description on Amazon and Gamestop, the controller will last a mammoth 80 hrs before it goes dead.]
Downside on another note, however, as the controller won’t be able to play Wii games, so be sure to keep you old Wii classic controller underneath the couch. Just in case…
Here’s the official blurb:
Your games, your way. However you think of your gaming style – hardcore, old school, or purely nostalgic – the Wii U Pro Controller puts you in the game. Designed for accessibility and extended gameplay comfort, the Wii U Pro Controller features the dual analogue sticks and ergonomic button layout that you’ve come to expect, as well as a rechargeable battery that can last up to 80 hours on a single charge.
The Wii U Pro Controller can be used for playing a variety of games – from packaged games at retail to downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop. Look on the back of Wii U game packaging to see which games use the Wii U Pro Controller. Not compatible with the Wii system or games.
Thanks, Nintendo Life.
