After confirming that a Wii Remote Plus (which includes inbuilt Wii Motion Plus), was on its way to the public soon last month, Nintendo has now provided the details of the launch of the new product. So far only the Japanese launch has been revealed and the Wii Remote Plus will come in a variety of five different colors, retailing for ¥3,800 or around US $46. Alternatively, it will be available as a bundle with Wii Sports Resort for ¥5,800 or US $70.
Hopefully this will increase support for the Wii Motion Plus, which has been sorely lacking. Even a recent Nintendo published title like Metroid M did not support the add-on. Currently, having to hold the Wii Motion Plus together with a silicon case is inconvenient when needing to recharge the batteries, the Wii Motion Plus remote should alleviate this.
