Nintendo did a nice job with their new Princess Peach Wii Remote Plus controller. It's Peach pink and has some colored accents to make you think of Mushroom Kingdom's royalty. It sort of makes a set with the Mario and Luigi W...

Some of the imagery from the new trailer had my hopes up, but we didn't see much of that in our demo today.
