First official Wii Remote revealed for Nintendo GameCube

A Japanese auction website recently revealed an ultra-rare version of Nintendo’s Wii remote – one that was designed for Nintendo GameCube. The remote controller, which sold at Yahoo Auctions for 74,000 yen (approximately $663 USD), sports a button layout and shape similar to the final design of the iconic Wii Remote. It even includes a paired nunchuk controller and sensor bar. But unlike the wireless Wii controller that eventually launched in 2006, this one is hardwired and is attached to a GameCube controller connector at the end of its seemingly long cord.
