Here Are Some Fun Mario-Themed Super Smash Bros. Controllers

Peach and Luigi are joining the fight.

Game accessory designer and distributor PDP has something Peachy in store for Super Smash Bros. fans later this spring. Two new additions to the company's line-up of Wired Fight Pad Pro controllers—one customized in Princess Peach's colors, and the other in Luigi's—make it easier than ever to show your love for your main.

PDP announced the new controllers via a press release earlier today. Like other controllers in the Wired Fight Pad line-up, they're based on GameCube controllers, though the traditional (read: Stubby) C-stick can swapped out for a full-size stick. Whether you're a serious disciple of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Switch, or whether you insist on sticking with Super Smash Bros. Melee until Judgement Day, PDP's controllers will serve your GameCube controller needs in either case.

The new Luigi controller is about as green as you'd expect. It also has a big ol' "L" plate above its Home, Start, and Select buttons. Peach's controller is the real winner, though. It's creamy white with pink buttons, plus it boasts a crown-stamped plate above its own Home, Start, and Select buttons. Even if you don't main Peach, it's a very pretty option (and kind of delicious-looking, to be honest. I'm reminded of ice cream).

PDP's new controllers join its current line-up of customized Wired Fight Pad Pro controllers on May 15, and both retail for $24.99 USD. You can also get controllers based on Mario, Link, and Pikachu.

There are tons of Smash Bros. players who swear by their GameCube controllers (the franchise really took off with 2001's Super Smash Bros Melee for the GameCube), which means good business for accessory developers who tap into the market. Weirdly enough, I swore by the GameCube controller for all my Smash needs until Super Smash Bros. Ultimate weaned me off it.
