Nyko today unveiled two new peripherals for the Nintendo Wii: a Zapper-like gun device and a USB device for connecting to the Internet via a non-wireless method.
Nyko’s Perfect Shot allows players to experience more tactile control and accuracy during intense gaming sessions. Like the Wii Zapper, the Perfect Shot holds the Wii remote with a secure locking system, but it allows players to hit the remote’s B button using a tactile trigger mechanism. The lightweight and ergonomic design allows for extended use with less strain in the arm and hand. The Perfect Shot can also be used in conjunction with other peripherals by utilizing a pass-through port. This allows players to attach a Nunchuck or Classic Controller to the unit, providing more compatibility with other titles.
For gamers looking for a way to connect the Wii to a non-wireless Internet connection, the Nyko Net Connect USB device provides a high-speed Internet connection for the Wii, requiring only a Cat5 Ethernet cable and an existing Internet connection. With no complex setup codes or installation software, players can get their Wii online by plugging the device in to one of the Wii’s USB ports and attaching it to their home network. Once online, the players can take full advantage of the Wii’s unique online offerings, including the Opera Browser, WiiConnect24, Mii Parade and all other online gameplay features for Wii video games.
The Perfect Shot and Net Connect will be available early in December at retailers nationwide for $14.99 and $24.99, respectively.
