This joystick is like an Xbox 360 gamepad kangaroo carrying an SNES controller

Nintendo’s Wii U will be out in a month. That means you have a bit of time to decide on which accessories to get. How about a weird Xbox 360/SNES controller amalgamation.

Australian game retailer EB Games lists the “Wii U Controller — SNES Version” for $48. It looks like an Xbox 360 controller with a Super Nintendo pad growing inside of it. The retailer will ship the controller on the Wii U’s Australian launch day, Nov. 30.

This isn’t a first-party Nintendo controller, so it could be crap. Also, it isn’t currently listed on any North American retailer websites.

Nintendo will release the official Wii U Pro Controller on Nov. 18 in North American regions for $49.99.
