Wii U is compatible with Wii accessories so your nunchuck, remotes, and balance board will work with Nintendo’s new hardware. Nintendo assumes you already own a remote because the Wii U doesn’t include one even though the launch title Nintendo Land’s mini-games require a remote.
So, if you don’t own a Wii or plan to trade in your console you’ll need to get a 5,250 yen ($67) accessory pack which includes a Wii RemotePlus, nunchuck, and sensor bar.
