Snakebyte’s sweeping blow for the beginning of the year

Boundless play

The new snakebyte XL+ series turns the classic accessory concept upside down. While the classic accessories are built to complement existing features with hardware additives, snakebyte Europe, famous for qualitative and innovative accessories for consoles, handhelds and PC, now turns the tables. Instead of complementing the Wii Remote with attachments, snakebyte implements the attachment! With other words: Wii Motion Plus is built right into the new Remote XL+. Without any construction, no new silicon cases, just activate the remote and get started. But with the integration of Motion Plus the innovation isn’t at its end: integrated batteries, which can be charged directly via USB, are also included in the“all-around carefree package”. An external Sync-button makes sure that the Wii Remote does not have to be dismantled to be able to sign in.

The Remote XL+ will be available commercially from the 15th January 2010 for a price of 49.99€ (RRP).

We also have a solution for the ones who already have a Wii Remote and just want to upgrade it, true to the motto“less is more”. The Motion XL+ is a wireless Nunchuck. Therefore any cable connection to the Wii remote is dropped. The new freedom is furthermore complemented by the Motion Plus feature which is integrated in the receiver. So whoever is on the search for a wireless Nunchuck, will simply get an additional Motion Plus without having to purchase it additively.

The Motion XL+ will be available commercially from the 15th January 2010 for a price of 29.99€ (RRP).

The simplicity of charging

To enable a related accessory system, the way of charging the batteries has been newly conceived: The Flux Duo Induction Charger receives entry into the living room with its“wireless charging”. The Wii Remotes are charged via modern induction technology, by basically laying them into the charging pod. The troublesome act of removing the silicon sleeves is therefore dropped, because the Flux Duo charges also with“rubber”. Two induction batteries for snakebyte and Nintendo Wii remotes are already included in the set.

The Flux Duo Induction Charger will be available commercially from the 15th January 2010 for a price of 29.99€ (RRP).
