Wii MotionPlus’s Box, Jacket Rumor Confirmed

Back at the 2009 Game Developers Conference, a rumor had sprung up that much like Nintendo’s Wii Remote, the Wii MotionPlus would also find itself coming with a jacket.

Now, thanks to a report from GoNintendo, that would indeed seem to be the case. Strangely enough, it seems to be a full Wii Remote jacket with the extra room for the MotionPlus; personally, I had expected a small rubber encasing for the device alone.

The rumor from GDC also said that the device could not be removed from the jacket, but that has yet to be confirmed or denied. If true, then it looks like one will have to play Wii MotionPlus games with the jacket on, whether they like it or not.
