LEGO reveals custom Wii Remote

Publish date:

Danish block building specialist LEGO has revealed an intriguing alternative to Nintendo's standard WiiMote – the Play & Build Remote.

As is probably obvious, being a LEGO product the twist here is that users are able to build their own accessory. Well, partially at least. The unit comes more or less fully built, with buyers able to customise it by swapping around some of its decorative building blocks.

Kotaku says that the peripheral will be released in North America later this week for $40. There's no word on a European launch as of yet.
