New Nyko Wii U Accessories Impress At CES



Nyko showed off some new [amazon_link id=”B009AGXH64″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Wii U[/amazon_link] accessories at the CES show this week and they look to be very good additions for any Wii U owner.

Above you see the Pro Commander controller which is their answer to Nintendo’s Pro Controller butthere is one big difference in that Nyko has staggered the sticks on the controller so now it is almost the perfect twin of an Xbox 360 controller. It is wireless and will hold a 25 hour charge with the battery which is well below the 80 hours that Nintendo’s controller carries. The real selling point should be the $34.99 price point which is $15 dollars cheaper than Nintendo.

Below is the Charge Station U, a dock that charges your Gamepad but also has two charging spots for Wii controllers as well as rechargeable battery packs for each. The Charge Station will also cost $34.99.

Finally, the UBoost may be the most needed accessory for Wii U owners who play for extended periods of time and need more than a few hours charge from their Gamepad. It will double the Gamepad’s battery life and also comes with a kickstand for when you sit your Gamepad down or for TV viewing. It will come in white or black and only retail for $19.99, which sounds completely reasonable.

We all know Nintendo systems are the king of peripherals but these new items from Nyko appear to be more useful than fluff.
