Nintendo Wii black controllers for US

Nintendo on Thursday brought out its first non-white Wii controllers for the US. Previously only found in Japan, black versions of both the Wii remote and the nunchuk controller will reach the country. Both are functionally identical to their reference versions, although the remote will include the MotionPlus add-on and all-black protective jacket in the box.

The remote and MotionPlus combo will cost $50 while the nunchuk will cost $20. Nintendo is announcing both early and doesn't expect to ship either until November 16th. Color variants of the Wii itself aren't currently planned for the US.
