New Color Puts Nintendo’s Wii Remote and Nunchuk in the Black

Nintendo’s iconic Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ controllers are getting a new look, just in time for the holidays. Ever since the Wii™ system launched in November 2006, the controllers have been available only in white. On Nov. 16, Nintendo introduces new black versions.

The new black Wii Remote controller will be available packaged with a black Wii MotionPlus™ accessory, which brings enhanced precision to games. The package will be available at a suggested retail price of $49.99. The black Nunchuk controller will be available separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99.

Remember when Nintendo showed Metroid Prime Trilogy to the press when it was still a secret and revealed the game through a press release days later? Well, that’s apparently what’s happening with another project from the Big N.

On the latest IGN Nintendo Voice Chat podcast, a new mystery title was discussed. Although the Nintendo Team didn’t have much to say because it hasn’t been officially announced yet, Craig Harris did say that “judging from what it is, it’s not a B title.” Apparently it’s also a game that, as Matt Casamassina described, “came out of nowhere.” Fans probably won’t hear about what the title is all about for at least a few days, as that is what happened with Trilogy. But seeing as how it’s already in a playable state, there’s a good chance information will be shared sometime in the near future.

Haunted House Simulator Now Available Exclusively for Wii

Torrance, Calif., (October 13, 2009) –XSEED Games is pleased to announce today that JU-ON: The Grudge is now shipping to retailers across North America, exclusively for the Nintendo Wii™. JU-ON: The Grudge, a haunted house simulator and sensory experience developed by feelplus, is inspired by the Japanese films of the same name.

JU-ON: The Grudge is a unique addition to the horror title genre, immersing players in a first-person exploration of decrepit and haunted locales. Featuring five expansive levels and another level to be unlocked, from an abandoned warehouse to a crumbling hospital, players venture deep into darkened halls utilizing the Wiimote™ as a flashlight. The light cast exposes objects necessary for level progression such as keys and flashlight batteries, but may also unveil horrors best left in the dark. JU-ON: The Grudge also features a unique multi-player mode where the second player can trigger surprise scares with the press of a button.
