Black Wii Remote and Nunchuk hits shelves November 16

Nintendo has revealed that its black Wii Remote/MotionPlus and Nunchuk peripherals will hit stores on November 16, just in time for people to go absolutely batsh*t over them for the holidays. 

The black Wii Remote and black Wii MotionPlus will come as a package deal for $49.99, with the black Nunchuk being sold separately for $19.99. As expected, they’re just like the white ones, but they’re black. Nintendo’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing, Cammie Dunaway, thinks they’ll make great gifts this holiday. 

“The new color lets people customize their setup,” she said, “and the controllers make great stocking stuffers for players of any age.”

What she didn’t say was “once you go black, you never go back.” But I’m sure she was thinking it, because I certainly am. Or something.
