US: Black WiiMote arriving Friday

Though the UK is still waiting to get its hands on anything other than the classic white Wii, North American consumers will from this Friday (October 16th) be able to buy black versions of both the WiiMote and Nunchuck.

The WiiMote, which includes Nintendo’s Wii motion Plus add-on, will retail for $49.99. The Nunchuck will cost $19.99.

The Wii Remote revolutionized not only how people play games, but also who plays them,” Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing Cammie Dunaway stated.

The new colour lets people customize their setup, and the controllers make great stocking stuffers for players of any age.”
