Nintendo announces gold Wiimote for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2011

Remember the old days when we played that gold Zelda cartridge? Good times. Cool cartridge. Well, now Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Wii is “finally done,”, but wait there’s more.

With its release this holiday season there will also be a limited edition gold Wiimote. With MotionPlus built-in. No details on price yet. Hopefully we will have more soon.

Kinect and Wiimote hack for Dead Space 2

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2011


We’ve seen other hacks where the Kinect uses a Nintendo Wiimote, but the creator of this hack used the FAAST emulator for the Kinect and GlovePIE for the Wiimote, allowing you to have some pretty interesting Dead Space 2 games.

One interesting aspect of this hack is the ability to stomp on your the aliens in the game, which looks very satisfying. I’d love to play DS2 like this. Looks like a lot of fun.

Sonic the Hedgehog Inductive Wiimote Charger

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 27th, 2010

Look what we have here. Sonic the Hedgehog is willing to charge up your Wiimotes while showing the peace sign. He doesn’t look very happy about it though. You can understand why. He’d rather be chasing down golden rings and promoting Sega products. But sadly, those days are gone.

Now he is reduced to sub-par games and promoting Nintendo gear, which in this case will cost you $49.99. It comes from Mad Catz. Hey, at least it acts as a figurine too.

Lego Wiimote surfaces

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on October 13th, 2010

Lego fans will want to dust off their Wii and check out the official Lego Play and Build Remote for Nintendo Wii. Alas, the entire thing is not made of Legos, If it were, it wouldn’t be compatible with standard chargers and attachments. But it’s still pretty neat.

It will put you in the game more when playing those Lego Batman and Star Wars titles. These will be available on October 16th for $39.99.

Wii Remote Plus is official

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

Nintendo has been pretty slow out of the gate since the Wii debuted in one way or another. Now Nintendo is releasing something that should have been released at least a year ago. The Wii Remote Plus.

Nintendo today revealed the new controller which combines the original Wii Remote and its add-on, Wii MotionPlus, in the same controller.

Dr. Who fans who love playing the Nintendo Wii will be pleased to know that the Doctor Who sonic screwdriver is coming soon. They are available as a custom Wiimote as well as Nintendo DS stylus for a few upcoming titles.

The Wii game Doctor Who: Return To Earth and Nintendo DS title Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth, are scheduled to arrive in time for Christmas alongside these sonic screwdriver add-ons.

Wii controllers for people with really small hands

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2010

Do you have freakishly small hands? If so, the Wiimote is probably too big for you. Good thing Power A has your back with this new MiniRemote and MiniChuck. These controllers are 35% smaller. Great for those of small hand, little people, grandmothers and kids.

This retails for $49.99 and is due out in September. They are fully compatible with MotionPlus, and feature large buttons that are easy to find with your tiny fingers.

NHL Slapshot comes with Wayne Gretzky approved Wiimote hockey stick

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2010

Hard to believe a Hockey game hasn’t come bundled with a Wiimote hockey stick until now. This one is even endorsed by Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky himself. The game is EA’s upcoming NHL Slapshot, which comes with the small hockey stick shown above.

The stick holds both the Wiimote and nunchuck and has a foam blade that your TV will thank you for. I almost laughed when I read that Gretzky says that the stick is “very realistic” and “almost like playing in the NHL”. His drive to make money is also very realistic, and almost like playing in the NHL.

Nintendo Wiimote RVL-036 clears the FCC

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2010

Anyone would look at that image and instantly recognize it as a Wiimote. The Bluetooth device just passed through the FCC with flying colors courtesy of Foxconn. Not much detail, but there’s the new RVL-036 model number.

We don’t know what makes it so special, but we hope they’ve finally integrated the MotionPlus add-on into the controller. It would be nice if they made the design easier on the wrist too, but that’s just wishful thinking on our part.

Wii remote support coming to Android

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2010

Adding to the growing number of apps in the Android market, is the Wii Controller Demo, produced by Ryan Frawley. This fee software allows Android users to create a Bluetooth connection between their phone and a Wii Remote and then input information on the phone’s display.

This opens up some exciting long-term implications for gaming on Android. Frawley is still working on the software but it can already detect the presence of a Nunchuk and Classic Controller. Once the app is working the way they want it to, other developers will be allowed to use it in their games and emulators.

MoProUSA unveils Wiimote pistols

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2010

As a Wii owner you certainly have your choice of guns to choose from. But these are pretty good looking. Everything is still in prototype form, but it’s impressive. MoProUSA is looking to create a new range of gaming pistols, including one that requires no Wiimote and Nunchuk to operate.

The Duel Pro is modeled from a replica pistol, and has the guts of a Wii controller and Nunchuk inside. There’s also an analog nub on each side that lets you switch from one hand to the other. A color-changing LED is positioned on the rear for instant feedback.

Custom Ghostbusters Wiimote Proton Pack Mod

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 23rd, 2010

This is pretty awesome. I’m not sure I love Ghostbusters enough to want to play it with this custom Wiimote mod, but Jack Rossi does. He created this proton pack and thrower so he can play the Wii version of Ghostbusters as realistically as possible.

The cyclotron features four blue LEDs which allow the player to know which player is selected or active and the Blue Power Cell shows you how much power the pack has. The Thrower has been designed with ergonomics and function in mind.

Riiflex Wii Weights now available for $30

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2010

Sometimes it takes a long time for a product to go from concept to actual item. That’s the case with the Riiflex Wii weights, which will work with Wii Fit, or any other game. They are finally available now for $30 a pair, should you want to be a musclebound nerd.

Get yours when a standard Wiimote becomes too easy for your girlly arms to lift. Soon you’ll be able to lift that console too and the girls will go wild for ya.

Sega Zone: Sega Genesis with a Wiimote

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2010

Hey look, the Wii and the Sega Genesis had a baby. And it’s called the Sega Zone, which takes the Sega Genesis console and adds a pair of Wiimote-type controllers. To go along with those fancy new controls, they also throw in 30 new games for the system (16 of them support motion control of some sort).

There are also 20 classic Genesis games that come pre-loaded. We have no idea when it will be released here, but those in the UK can get one this summer for £39.95 ($60).
