In addition to everything else that’s hitting stores this week, it looks like Nyko’s new wireless solution to the Classic controller is headed to retail today, too.
The Wing features gobs of buttons and up to 10-feet of wireless connectivity via a dongle you plug into the botton of your Wii Remote. The Wing also lets you use rechargeable AAA batteries which can be charged through the Wing’s mini USB port.
“The Wing is a great example of what we at Nyko aim to do: improve the gamer’s experience with a quality made product”, said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. “There have been very few options for classic gaming control designed specifically for the Wii until now, and the Wing provides a comfortable and affordable wireless alternative that fans of Virtual Console games will enjoy using.”
The controller sells for $30. — Kotaku
“Gobs of buttons?” Looking at the picture, I realize that it seems to be the same number as the regular Classic, but I’m amused that they would phrase it in such a way that seems to contradict one part of what the Wii is supposed to be about.
