Nintendo settles Nunchuk lawsuit

Third party to continue to sell its own motion-sensing controller

Nintendo has announced that it has settled a dispute with peripheral manufacturer Nyko over alleged patent infringements on its Nunchuk controller.

The terms of the settlement over the lawsuit, brought about by Nintendo, were not disclosed, but Nyko is to continue to be able to sell its own products as before, albeit with a redesign.

"We are pleased to have resolved this dispute," said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. "The Nunchuk and Wii brands are familiar to consumers worldwide, and Nintendo is dedicated to vigorous defence of those brands."

And Herschel Naghi, CEO of Nyko, added: "Nyko Technologies is proud to be an industry leader in gaming accessories, and we will continue to develop exciting products for the benefit of the gaming community."
