Nintendo Wii Accessories
There are many accessories available that will enhance and customize your Wii gaming experience. Some accessories, like the Nunchuk controller or the Classic Controller, are required to play certain games on the Wii console. Others, such as Wii remote skins, add fun colors and patterns to customize your stuff. There are even accessories that add style and safety, like colored wrist straps that keep your Wii remote in your hands.
What is the Nunchuk controller?
The Nunchuk controller is an attachment that connects to the port on the bottom of the Wii Remote. The Nunchuk has a control stick and additional buttons that are required to play certain Wii games, yet provides the comfort of not having your hands close together on a traditional controller. The Nunchuk also has motion sensing capabilities, so you can play games such as Boxing on Wii Sports or The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess that make use of motions on both hands.
Does the Nunchuk require any batteries?
The Nunchuk doesn't require any batteries because it is powered by your Wii Remote.
What is the Classic Controller?
The Classic Controller is an attachment that also connects to the port on the bottom of the Wii Remote. The Classic Controller is reminiscent of memorable game controllers from early Nintendo game consoles. This controller allows friends and family to enjoy classic games from days passed through Nintendo's Virtual Console, where people can download classic Nintendo games and play them on the Wii.
What are skins?
Skins are fun covers for your Wii console and Wii Remotes. These covers come in fun colors and patterns and allow you to personalize your gear while adding some protection from scratches and stuff.
What are wrist straps?
Wrist straps are just what they sound like: straps that fit around your wrist and keep your Wii Remote in your hands. Motion gaming on the Wii is fun, but it would be too easy to lose your grip on the Wii Remote without a wrist strap. The strap is easily slips into a notch in the bottom of the Wii Remote and latches securely into place on your wrist, preventing the Wii Remote from being accidentally being thrown and possible injuring somebody. The wrist straps also come in many colors and styles, so you can customize your own Wii Remote.
