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.
