Leaked photos of updated Wii U controller emerge There have been rumors for months that Nintendo will update their Wii U controllers before showing off the final version of the console at this year's E3 event.
This weekend, a QA tester at Traveller's Tales Games posted a picture of the updated controller on Twitter before quickly removing it.

In the updated controller, Nintendo has added actual analog sticks, upgrading from the "nubs" showed off last year and seen on the 3DS handheld.

Secondly, the Start and Select buttons have been moved to the right side of the controller from the center, making them more accessible.

Finally, Nintendo has added the Wii U branding and two small squares, both of which have unknown qualities.

As cool as it looks (and it does look super appealing), I feel like it'll cost a fortune to buy because of the screen on it.

Hope they subsidize heavy or people buying might end up having to stick with the controllers given.

Why are the controllers getting more complex with each system? OVERKILL!!!
