They made a pearl white gamecube controller, that came bundled with the pearl white gc/super smash football combo. kinda rare. but that would be awesome if they included it with ssbb. I'd much prefer playing with the GC controller over the classic controller.
and I don't care what anyone says, i'm glad they aren't using the wiimote for this game. it would take away from it's simplicity. it's one of those games thats easy to pick up but you can still master it, and i'm glad they are sticking with that formula.
