With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the horizon, players are prepping with pre-ordering bundles. More importantly, gamers are getting their hands on GameCube controllers, like the more preferred method to enjoy the platform fighting title.

With Nintendo formally announcing their own Smash Ultimate edition of the controller, peripheral company PDP has rolled out pre-orders for their own wired GameCube controllers. What stands out is players have the choice between Mario, Zelda, and Pikachu-themed GameCube controllers.

PDP mentions on their website that these controllers have the unique ability to swap out the original C-Stick on the pad for a full-size version for personal preference, so players won’t have to feel worried about wearing out their C-stick like they did in their Smash Wii U days. The controller also boasts a 10-foot cable for “plenty of room to get comfortable” their website says.

The controllers are priced at $24.99 on Amazon with a set release date for November 23. You can also see pictures of the three GameCube controllers below.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate , on the other hand, is slated to release on December 7, exclusively for Switch.
