The Wii U may have had a pretty short life compared to most consoles but it did end up with some great games so it I do still play it fairly often however neither of my controllers (the Wii U Gamepad and a Chinese counterfeit of a Pro controller) are nearly as cool as this amazing Legend of Zelda controller mod! One gamer took a Wii U Fight Pad and turned it into the ultimate Legend of Zelda controller!
This beautifully done Legend of Zelda controller mod was created by console modder Vadu Amka. They took a Wii U Fight Pad and re-sculpted it, painted it, put real leather straps on it and even though some moss on it to make it look extra incredible! Oh, and the D-Pad was also replaced with a metal one so that isn’t just a metallic look, that is an actual metal D-Pad.
To say that Vadu did an incredible job with this is an understatement because all of the details from the Hylian Shield to the bricks to the leather straps to the moss look insanely well done! If I had a choice of controllers to play with on the Wii U, this would definitely be my controller of choice! At least I wouldn’t have to worry about the battery dying on me after a couple of hours like I do with the Wii U Gamepad.
Make sure to check out the additional pictures and even a video below showing the controller in all its glory!
