You love your Wii U games, but you prefer the DualShock 4 controller to Nintendo’s own pad? Starting today the Japanese manufacturer Cyber Gadget has a solution for you.

The company just released an adapter that advertises the ability to connect a DualShock 4 to the Wii U, and use it to control Mario and his friends.

Reading further in the product details, though, it’s even more versatile; it’s compatible with the DualShock 3 as well, and with most USB PC controllers. In addition to that, it even works with the old Wii.

All you have to do is to connect your controller of choice to a Wii Remote by plugging one end of the adapter into its bottom port and the other end to the controller’s USB cable, and you’re done.

The adapter weighs only 20 grams, and is 15 cm (six inches) long. It costs 2,680 yen including taxes, which translates to an affordable 22.5 bucks. Unfortunately no info have been given by the manufacturer about a possible western release.

Below you can see a few pictures. One thing is for sure: one of these things is gonna find its way into my luggage when I’m going to Tokyo in March.
