WiiSpeak preorders now available on Amazon

Online retailer Amazon is now taking preorders for WiiSpeak.

Nintendo’s first voice chat peripheral for online gaming, WiiSpeak was designed to contrast the industry’s standard headset. WiiSpeak captures several voices at once and is meant to connect groups of friends online.

Perhaps consumers will have learned from Nintendo’s persistent hardware shortages over the last two years and will take advantage of the opportunity to secure themselves a WiiSpeak for the holidays.

WiiSpeak is priced at $29.99 and is scheduled to ship Nov. 16. The peripheral will also be bundled with Animal Crossing: City Folk, the only game with which it is currently compatible, for $69.99.
