Report: There Is A New Wii Remote

And it is apparently called "Wii Remote Plus".

The box art for upcoming Wii title FlingSmash seems to be bundled with a new Wii Remote. The box notes, "Bonus Wii Remote Plus Inside!"

The game is compatible with Wii MotionPlus, the motion add-on peripheral for the Wii Remote. The Wii MotionPlus was released in 2009 and offers more precise motion control.

If this box art is correct, then Nintendo is releasing a Wii Remote that already features an on-board integrated Wii MotionPlus. The game and the remote are priced at $US49.99.

FlingSmash was originally supposed to be out a few months ago but has been pushed to November. A new remote could explain the delay.

Kotaku is contacting Nintendo and will update if the company comments. - Buy FlingSmash - Nintendo Wii [GameStop via SlashGear]


    I'm thankful. It will save me detaching and reattaching the motion plus between games that use it and not but... This is what it should have been in the first place.
