Nintendo Introduces Wii MotionPlus Accessory

Not happy enough with the accuracy of your Wii Remote? Nintendo has announced it will be releasing a Wii MotionPlus accessory, built specifically to improve precision.

The MotionPlus accessory attaches to the end of the Wii Remote, and improves tracking of a player's arm position and orientation. According to Nintendo, MotionPlus provides "a true 1:1 response" during gameplay. The company did not reveal how the Nunchuck will be used when the MotionPlus is attached, although the accessory does look to be equipped with a semi-hidden port on its back.

Nintendo will reveal more details about the Wii MotionPlus at its E3 media briefing tomorrow, which Shacknews will be attending.
