Nintendo To Release Wii Remote “Plus” This Holiday?


https://www.siliconera.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/fling_smash_bundle.jpg?resize=161%2C223 Earlier this week, a Gamestop listing discovered by the Internet that has now been taken down made mention of a “Wii Remote Plus” bundle with FlingSmash, an Artoon-developed game that requires the MotionPlus add-on for the Wii remote.


As you can see from the cover of the bundle, there’s no separate image depicting the MotionPlus, while the text itself says “Wii Remote Plus inside.” This likely means that Nintendo are ready to start rolling out MotionPlus-integrated remotes as a competitor to the PlayStation Move.
