Kunai Stereo Gaming Headset....for those who managed to get a Wii U.

As expected, Nintendo had a short supply of the their next generation console, Wii U, available for purchase.  While that is an entirely different story, Mad Catz is making sure that those who managed to pick up a Wii U will have plenty of high quality sound to listen to.  Announced for both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS is the Tritton Kunai headset.  Tritton headsets have exploded in the past couple of years after bursting onto the scene at CES just a few years ago, and with Mad Catz backing them up, we are starting to see a unique crossover with accessories.  I have to appreciate a company that isn't leaving the handheld gamer out to dry, especially those who have both a 3DS and a Wii U now.
