Shinobii Announces Release of Xcross Wii Remote-1.052010-02-02 19:52:29Maura S

Are you a Wii gamer who has extra huge thumbs? You are?! Well, Shinobii Technologies could have just the product you’ve been looking for. The company has today announced the Xcross Remote, which is specifically designed with an extra wide direction pad. The Xcross Remote is fully compatible with all classic Nunchuk controllers and add-ons such as Wii MotionPlus, and comes complete with a free wrist strap and silicone sleeve. It has a wireless play range of up to five metres or 16 feet, as well as the usual built-in speaker and vibration features, and an accelerometer for full motion control. It looks as if it only comes in black at the moment, so if you want one to match your nice shiny white original Wii then you’re out of luck!

The Xcross Remote is available now for €29.99 from the Shinobii website and will also be available in stores in the US and Europe in mid-February.
