Nyko Technologies Unleashes New Wii Accessories Just in Time for HolidaysLos Angeles
Nyko Technologies®, the premier videogame accessories manufacturer, today announced that it has shipped the Charge Station™ Quad for Nintendo® Wii™ to select retailers nationwide. The latest iteration of the company’s best-selling Charge Station™, the new Charge Station Quad offers a convenient way to charge up to four Wii Remotes simultaneously, adds rubber battery covers for superior grip, and allows charging to take place with the wrist strap still attached. Priced at an MSRP of $49.99, the new Charge Station Quad is the perfect gift to save money on batteries while providing a clean and organized method of storing your Wii Remote™.
In addition, Nyko Technologies also revealed that the Wired Wing and Wired Kama, previously announced to be on display at CES 2009, will be shipping to stores early together as the Control Pak™. The value package combines wired versions of the popular Wing and Kama controllers for an essential collection that every Wii owner should have. The Wing classic-style controller is designed to fit comfortably in the hands and is perfect for nostalgic games on the Wii’s Virtual Console™ channel. The Kama combines a wider body with grooves and a rubber battery cover for a better grip, complete with a Z button shaped to prevent finger slippage. The Wired Wing and Wired Kama are currently only available with the Control Pak at an MSRP of $29.99.
“As we approach the holiday season, we’re pleased to close 2008 by offering several new and very useful accessories: the Charge Base Quad and the Control Pak,” said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. “The Charge Station will save consumers money otherwise spent on disposable batteries and the Control Pak will serve as an affordable alternative to the popular wireless originals.”
