NYKO are set to release a wireless adaptor for the Nintendo Wii’s Nunchuk. “The Cord-Free is a unique wireless adaptor for the Wii Nunchuk that easily converts your wired Nunchuk in to a wireless peripheral for your Wii remote. The ergonomic sleeve easily holds and organizes the Nunchuk, cable and batteries providing a compact, clean and convenient conversion system for the Nunchuk. Once the Nunchuk is inserted in the sleeve, you can now enjoy full wireless freedom with all your favourite Wii games without the hassle of any wires tethering your hands together.”
“The Cord-Free is powered by 2 AAA batteries which provide up 60 hours of play time and has a wireless range of up to 15 feet. The Cord-Free is the best solution to get the most freedom from your wired Nunchuks.”
Alternatively, you could purchase the Wireless Nunchuk replacement which “provides all the same abilities and features of the wired version, but with no cables tethered to the Wii remote. The Wireless Nunchuk is compatible with all Wii software that utilizes the Nunchuk attachment and requires no additional software or modification of the Wii hardware to work, simply plug and play. The lightweight and compact dongle attaches to the bottom of the remote and provides a wireless range of up to 3 meters.
“Two AAA batteries (included) provide up to 30 hours of game play for extended gameplay sessions. The Wireless Nunchuk is the ideal solution for users demanding more flexibility and freedom while playing their favourite Wii games.”
Will you be picking up either of the two? Or do you think they’re just another device to drain your Duracell? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
