Wii Classic Controllers No Longer Being Manufactured By Nintendo

Both Pro & original models have stopped production

Eagle-eyed Twitter user @kitroplious has spotted an interesting tidbit about Nintendo's Wii Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. The following message was discovered on Club Nintendo while the user attempted to order a Wii game using his reward credit:

Perhaps this is an indication that Nintendo is eager to shift more units of the Wii U's Pro Controller (which, by the way, is incompatible with the original Wii); either way, it's slightly disappointing for users who may want to purchase and utilize the controller for the Wii's (currently) much more expansive Virtual Console service. Hopefully Nintendo will continue to grow its digital library on Wii U to alleviate these sort of compatibility problems in the future, while existing stock and second hand units are always options for the Wii's controller.

What do you think of this development in Nintendo's controller selection? Were you a fan of the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro, and are you sad to see its production end?

Thanks to Ryan Millar for the tip.
