Nintendo Settles Wii Controller Lawsuit

By Chris Faylor, Dec 17, 2008 11:09am PST Nintendo and Nyko today settled one of the many prending lawsuits pertaining to Wii controllers. The lawsuit, filed by Nintendo back in June, accused Nyko of violating trademarks and patents through its Wii Kama Wireless Nunchuks.

The settlement will allow Nyko and its retail partners to sell a redesigned Wii Kama Wireless Nunchuk. Specific terms of the agreement were not provided. Thus far, Nintendo has only officially released a wired version of the Wii Nunchuk add-on.

"We are pleased to have resolved this dispute," said Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. "The Nunchuk and Wii brands are familiar to consumers worldwide, and Nintendo is dedicated to vigorous defense of those brands."
