Wii Remote Plus spotted

Motion Plus plus a Wii Remote?

A new Wii controller that appears to be a fusion of the Wii Motion Plus accessory and the standard Wii Remote has popped up on US shop Gamestop's website.

It's called Wii Remote Plus, and comes bundled with Nintendo's game FlingSmash (spotted by Kotaku).

The box art that reveals the new Wii Remote does not appear to be on UK website listings for FlingSmash, which is without a European release date.

What is FlingSmash anyway? Well, since you asked...

"FlingSmash combines the hands-on fun of tennis with the nonstop action and instant gratification of pinball. When the tropical Suthon Island is invaded by the evil Omminus, the ball-shaped hero, Zip, is summoned to save the day. Using the Wii Remote™ controller with the Wii MotionPlus accessory, you'll fling Zip at targets to smash your way across eight colorful worlds. Use the Wii Remote controller like a racket and watch Zip bounce around like a pinball to smash through oncoming barriers and enemies in this action sidescroller."

A Nintendo spokesperson confirmed to Eurogamer that Wii Remote Plus "is real" but added, "We have nothing to announce on this at the moment."
