You Can Use PlayStation 2 Pads On Your Wii U, Should You Want To

Optional extra

Are you a bit bummed about the fact that the Wii U Pro Controller isn't compatible with original Wii titles? Do you consider Sony's iconic Dual Shock pad to be one of the best in the business? Well you're in luck - Datel Japan has released an adapter which allows you to use your PlayStation 2 joypad on the Wii U or Wii.

All you have to do is attach it to your Wii Remote, plug in the PS2 pad and you're golden. It even has a turbo button, just like old pads used to have in the 16-bit era!

Release date in Japan is 8th December, and it costs 1,980 Yen - which is around £16 / $25. No word on a western launch yet, but we'd imagine it's likely.
