The lawsuit alleges that Nyko "wholly appropriates the novel shape, design, overall appearance and even the color and materials used in the Nintendo Nunchuk controller," according to documents obtained by Bloomberg.
Whereas Nintendo officially produces a Nunchuk add-on that connects to the Wii Remote with a wire to provide more buttons and an analog stick, Nyko's Kama Nunchuks connects to the Wii Remote wirlessly but offers the same functionality.
"We have not knowingly violated anyone's intellectual property and we're still examining this," stated Nyko representative C.C. Swiney.
I can see the reason for the lawsuit but I mean... It's a good peripheral =/
yeah it'd be nice to have a wii controller that doesn't cramp up my hand
Honestly, I Assumed with how similar it was there was an agreement, now knowing there wasn't was honestly a big shock to me, usually I'm against lawsuits but I do see a fair reason here.
