Wanna buy a Black Wii Remote? You’re gonna have to buy another MotionPlus


Straight from the horses mouth: Nintendo’s iconic Wii Remoteâ„¢ and Nunchukâ„¢ controllers are getting a new look, just in time for the holidays. Ever since the Wiiâ„¢ system launched in November 2006, the controllers have been available only in white. On Nov. 16, Nintendo introduces new black versions.

The new black Wii Remote controller will be available packaged with a black Wii MotionPlusâ„¢ accessory, which brings enhanced precision to games. The package will be available at a suggested retail price of $49.99. The black Nunchuk controller will be available separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99.

“The Wii Remote revolutionized not only how people play games, but also who plays them,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales and Marketing. “The new color lets people customize their setup, and the controllers make great stocking stuffers for players of any age.”
