A white Classic Controller Pro

The Classic Controller Pro is an upgrade over the standard Wii Classic Controller. It features Classic Controller ZL Button and Classic Controller ZR Button buttons as full-fledged shoulder buttons, similar to the L Button and R Button of a Nintendo GameCube Controller. It also has added controller grips, making it slightly bigger than a standard Classic Controller. Unlike its predecessor, the Classic Controller Pro does not feature pressure-sensitive Classic Controller L Button and Classic Controller R Button buttons.

The Classic Controller Pro was released in Japan on August 1, 2009 in both black and white colors. It was subsequently released in Europe and North America in November 2009.[1] and April 2010[2] respectively (though only the black model released in Europe).

Just as the Nintendo GameCube was codenamed Dolphin and the Wii was codenamed Revolution, the Classic Controller was codenamed Shell.[3]
