    Wii Remote Plus to Become the Standard Wii Controller from November 7

    Nintendo of America announced today that from November 7 2010, the new Wii Remote Plus controller will be replacing the iconic Wii Remote controller as the standard Wii controller. The Wii Remote Plus has built-in Wii MotionPlus functionality, offering players precision motion controls all in one unit. From November 7th, the Wii Remote Plus will be available in all Wii hardware packages and bundles, as well as being sold separately for a suggested RRP of $39.99. This makes solid sense from Nintendo as several key upcoming games, including the forthcoming Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, require Wii MotionPlus in order to play.

    As well as revealing this news, Nintendo also released some figures about total Wii Remote sales to date, stating that in the United States alone, more than 65.3 million Wii Remote controllers have been sold to consumers, adding the staggering fact that this equates to enough Wii Remote controllers for every man, woman and child living in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, San Jose, Detroit, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, North Dakota and San Franciso! Wowser, Bowser! Thatís what you call some impressive stats!
