For the Wii U eShop debut of the original game, Nintendo is using the Pikmin: New Play Control version that it launched on the Wii in 2009. That update enabled gamers to control Olimar and the Pikmin using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers for a more precise play experience.
Nunchuk is stiffer in the two ends and softer in the middle. This is where the name Nunchuk comes from – a version of nunchaku, a traditional martial arts weapon with three sections.
Need an extra Wii Remote Plus? Don't want to be caught woefully lacking when friends show up to play ? Nintendo's online store has a new price on used but working Remote-and-Nunchuk combos that may interest you.
The store has temporarily reduced the price on its refurbished combos from $30 to $20 for an unknown period of time. Available colours include the classic , sultry , and whimsical . The Nunchuk are said to match the colours of the Remotes, which is a nice touch.
