The Nintendo® Wii Remote™ Plus in black is an updated Wii remote with built-in MotionPlus hardware. The MotionPlus hardware increases the sensitivity of the controller and allows every twist and turn to be translated into movement on screen, making your actions more precise and accurate.
When the original Wii controllers were released, they were less sensitive and therefore Nintendo® developed the MotionPlus add-on. The attachment was a small cube fitted to the bottom of the original Wii controller, adding to the overall size by about a third. With the new Wii Remote™ Plus, the controller has identical dimensions to the standard Wii gaming remote, but with all the precision of the MotionPlus hardware built in to the compact size. Now you can use all of the compatible accessories you already have for the standard remote.
The main reason for upgrading from the original Wii controllers to the Wii U Remote™ Plus is because it combines the functionality of the standard Wii remote plus the MotionPlus module, but in the compact size of the standard Wii remote, thus allowing you to use your favourite Wii accessories without the added module weighing you down. This remote is compatible with both the Wii and the Wii U. The Wii U Remote™ Plus also comes with batteries installed and fitted with a wrist strap and transparent sleeve.
