Nintendo has just announced a release date for the black-colored Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. On November 17th, American gamers will now be able to pick up another color for their extra Wii controllers. Additionally, the new Wii Remote will now come bundled with a MotionPlus add-on for $50, which is only $10 more than the non-enhanced white Wii Remote. The release date of these controllers comes only two days after Nintendo unleashes New Super Mario Bros. Wii onto the world, which will undoubtedly drive many gamers to purchase more Wii Remotes for their systems.

Unfortunately, the Wii itself is still only available in white outside of Japan. What's the deal, Nintendo? Didn't we have about a dozen different GameCube system colours three years after the system came out? And don't even get me started on the Nintendo 64! Anyway, here's the press release.


Nintendo's iconic Wii Remote(tm) and Nunchuk(tm) controllers are getting a new look, just in time for the holidays. Ever since the Wii(tm) 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(tm) 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.

"The Wii Remote revolutionized not only how people play games, but also who plays them," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "The new color lets people customize their setup, and the controllers make great stocking stuffers for players of any age."

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
