Japan to get the Classic Controller Pro

In an interesting move, Nintendo of Japan today announced that they are planning to release an updated version of the Classic Controller, called the Classic Controller Pro.

It mostly seems to be a design change - The cord connecting it to the Wii remote is now on the top instead of the bottom, there are now two grips to make holding the controller slightly easier, and the ZL and ZR buttons are now behind the L and R buttons instead of being next to them.

The Classic Controller Pro is slated to be released in Japan in the summer. There are no plans for a release elsewhere yet.
