Play Wii with a few less strings attached this Feb.
If on the off-chance you are a living caricature of Shaquille O’Neal, then you should be happy to hear that today Nyko announced an adaptor for the Nintendo Wii Nunchuk that allows it to communicate wirelessly with the Wii Remote from up to 15 feet away. While not exactly the wireless Nunchuk shown-off – and awarded – at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, this new dongle should still prove to be useful for those looking to make their gaming experience as cordless as possible. Running on two AAA batteries around 60 hours, the Cord-Free Wireless Adaptor for Wii Nunchuk should hit stores in February and retail for approximately $19.99 (USD). For more information on this new peripheral for the Nintendo Wii, be sure to check out Nyko’s official press release below:
LOS ANGELES - January 29, 2008 - Nyko Technologies ®, a premier peripherals manufacturer, today announced that they will release the Cord-Free wireless adapter for the Wii Nunchuk this February.
While the highly anticipated award winning Wireless Nunchuck for Wii is a brand-new standalone product, the Cord-Free wireless adapter for Wii Nunchuk differentiates from its sibling by converting your standard wired Nunchuk into a wireless peripheral. The adapter adds a convenient self-standing sleeve for the wired Nunchuk and a wireless signal dongle to the bottom of your Wii Remote. A small dongle provides lag-free wireless connection between your Wii Remote and Nunchuk and adds up to 15 feet of wireless range. The self-standing Nunchuk sleeve features a convenient compact cord management system keeping the existing Nunchuk cord organized and out of site. The Cord-Free wireless adapter for the Wii Nunchuk runs on two AAA batteries (included) and provides up to 60 hours of continuous gameplay.
"Nyko is dedicated to providing outstanding wireless solutions for Wii gamers," said Chris Arbogast, Marketing Director at Nyko Technologies. "We want to provide multiple options for those looking to untangle their Wii experience."
Nyko's Cord-Free wireless adapter for the Wii Nunchuk will be available at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
