All things retro are cool and Datel Japan takes us way back with this skin for the Wii U. Paying homage to Nintendo's roots, Datel mimics the look of the Famicom's controller. The Famicom was the first Nintendo. It released exclusively in Japan while the Nintendo most of us are familiar with released two years later in 1985. The skin features an aluminum finish with burgundy accents and a black d-pad and buttons just like the original. Datel Japan plans on releasing this skin in July with a retail price of ¥1,980, roughly $20 USD.
