Spice up your Nintendo Wii console set with the new black controllers that will be released on the 16th of November. The Nunchuk is sold separately, but the controller package comes with a matching black Wii MotionPlus accessory.

In line with their open-to-all-ages attitude, the VP of Sales and Marketing commented that the new color provides more customization to reflect your style of preference. I've always had a personal preference of black over white when it comes to my electronics, but I don't see myself buying a few more $50 controllers just to feel chic.

New Color Puts Nintendo’s Wii Remote and Nunchuk in the Black

Nintendo’s iconic Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ controllers are getting a new look, just in time for the holidays. Ever since the Wii™ 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 MotionPlus™ 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 & Marketing. “The new color lets people customize their setup, and the controllers make great stocking stuffers for players of any age.”
