Full body indigo shell with matching plug and a white “Nintendo GameCube” logo. It was released in console bundles with a matching console and as a standalone accessory worldwide.
- On May 14th 2002, Nintendo announced that it would reduce the retail price of the standalone Indigo, Jet Black, Spice Orange and Indigo/Clear GameCube controller in the US from $34.99 to $24.99.
- This markdown also took place in Europe less than two weeks after the console’s release, from €39.95 to €34.95 for the Indigo, Jet Black and Indigo/Clear standalone GameCube controllers.
- This was the first controller variant released with the launch of the Indigo GameCube on September 14th 2001 in Japan.
- *About the South Korean release date: The GameCube was released in South Korea on December 14th 2002, so I assume the standalone Indigo was released on the same date.
- The Indigo controller has the most internals and stamp variations, tied with the Jet Black controller.
- The Indigo controller has the most standalone packaging, with 7 unique boxes.
