Nyko Unveils New Wii Accessories at Gamescom 2009

COLOGNE, Germany - August 18, 2009

Nyko Technologies, the leading video game peripherals manufacturer, will debut their newest gaming gear this week at Gamescom 2009 (August 19th-22nd). At the expo, Nyko will be showing their current product line, along with several unreleased items including the Type Pad Pro for Wii, the DSi Zoom Case, the PSP Charge Grip Flex and the Speaker Com 360. In addition Nyko is unveiling their new induction charging dock for the Wii, the Charge Base IC, as well as the award-winning Wand controller for Wii in four fun new colors. Stop by the Nyko booth (Hall 8, Aisle B, Booth #036) to check out all the latest accessories for today’s video game consoles.

The Charge Base IC is Nyko’s first induction charging dock for the Wii. Instead of using metal contact points to recharge the Wii Remote or Wand’s batteries, the Charge Base IC utilizes induction technology to charge your controllers. The design of the Charge Base IC allows Wii Remotes or Wands to be charged without having to remove any silicone jackets or attachments such as Wii Motion Plus. Also, Nyko utilizes powerful magnets to hold the controllers in place while on the dock. The Charge Base IC also features a powered USB port which can be used for charging other devices.

After announcing ten new color options for the Wand controller in Japan, Nyko will be bringing four of those new colors to the European and North American markets this Holiday season. Now gamers can personalize the world’s most advanced Wii controller- with new Wand color options in black, purple, pink, and blue. All color varieties feature Nyko’s Trans-Port technology which allows for compatible peripherals to communicate digitally with the Wand.
