Manufactured by Zappies Ltd, the Nintendo Wireless Kit, which transforms the existing cabled Nunchuk into a wire-free controller, is priced at £19.95 and claims to offer users 'unhindered play'.
The unit features a wireless receiver which clips onto the bottom of the Wii Remote. The existing Nunchuk then inserts into the bundled wireless housing and 'speaks' to the Wii Remote by pressing a synch button, lighting up an LED when the two are communicating. It claims to provide 20 hours of gaming powered by two AAA batteries.
Zappies Wireless Kit is released ahead of Nyko Technologies' previously announced wireless Nunchuk, which is already on sale in the US and is launching in the UK on May 16, priced at £34.99.
The Nyko Technologies unit, which won Best in Show at the CES electronics show, could suffer in the competitive UK market, however, as Logic3 plans to undercut other wireless Nunchuk adaptors when it launches its own version on April 25 for £12.99.
