LOS ANGELES - September 2, 2008
Nyko Technologies®, the premier game console peripherals manufacturer, today revealed its new wireless controller design, the Wing™, for the popular Nintendo Wii™ game console system. Using Nyko’s wireless dongle system that conveniently plugs into the bottom of the Wii Remote™, the Wing eliminates the cord for games that require the Classic Controller.
With a sleek aesthetic, colorful appeal and an ergonomic design, the Wing incorporates utility with a refreshing look for a value unmatched by any other controller available on the market. Nyko’s wireless dongle plugs into the Wii Remote, providing up to 10 feet of wireless range and up to 30 hours of playtime on two AAA batteries. For the environmentally conscious, the Wing comes equipped with a USB port and cable for easy charging of rechargeable batteries (not included) and it boasts a rugged, durable build.
“As more and more games utilizing the classic controller scheme become available through the Virtual Console and WiiWare Channels, we wanted to offer a step up to what was currently available,” said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. “With the new Wing controller, we’re providing gamers with old-school gaming compatibility, combined with modern ergonomics and wireless technology.
Nyko’s wireless Wing classic controller will be available in October for the suggested retail price of $29.99. Please visit www.nyko.com for more information.
