Wii Remote Plus gets Japan date

Available in five different colours.

The Wii Remote Plus an updated version of the Wii controller incorporating the MotionPlus add-on will go on sale in Japan on 11th November, Nintendo has announced.

The controller will be available in white, black, red, blue and pink, and will retail for 3,800. That translates to around 29 or 33 in real money.

According to Andriasang, the existing Wii Sports Resort bundle will be updated to include the new controller rather than the standalone MotionPlus peripheral.

Boxart for Nintendo's forthcoming Peggle/R-Type hybrid Flingsmash suggests that the new controller will be bundled in with that game too.

Nintendo hasn't confirmed a release for the new controller outside of Japan yet. We've approached it for comment and will update if it's forthcoming with a date.
