Nintendo Wii accessories are plentiful and when you first buy a new Wii, you’d think that you need every Nintendo Wii accessory there is, but that’s not the case. These are the first accessories you’ll need after you buy a new Nintendo Wii game console.
Wiimote (Wii Remote)
Sure, the Nintendo Wii comes with a Wiimote, but this game console is no Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. The Nintendo Wii is a family game console is meant to be played with other people. Having one Wiimote accessory won’t be enough to please an entire family of gamers, you’ll need at least an additional Wiimote to play your favorite Nintendo Wii games with all your pals and family members.
The Nintendo Wii Wiimote delivers a new gaming experience and is the first game accessory of its kind. Gamers are used to handling a single game controller and mashing buttons repeatedly to control their games and the Wiimote game accessory might take a while to get used to. Luckily the Nintendo Wii has a game accessory to help the gamer suffering to get used to the new Wii remote, the classic controller. The classic controller is a Wiimote accessory that allows gamers to play their games the old fashioned way: without a Nunchuk accessory.
Nyko Charge Station
Playing the Nintendo Wii for hours on end will drain your Wiimote batteries and you’ll likely waist lots of cash buying batteries unless you own a Nyko Charge Station accessory. This Nintendo Wii accessory allows gamers to charge their Wiimote game controllers without the use of batteries, giving gamers more hours of game play without worrying if their Wiimotes will run out of “juice”.
Wii Motion Plus
Motion sensing is what the Nintendo Wii gaming control is all about and the new Wii Motion Plus accessory takes the Nintendo Wii’s motion sensing capabilities to a new level. The Wii Motion Plus is a required Nintendo Wii accessory for certain games like Wii Sports: Resort and is a must have Wii accessory for gamers that want more control while playing their Wii games.
The Nunchuk accessory is a must have for anyone that owns a Nintendo Wii game console. There are some Wii games that only requires a Wiimote, but most games need a Nunchuk controller accessory to be played and unfortunately, this accessory isn’t included when you first buy a new Nintendo Wii. The Nintendo Wii Nunchuk is usually used for navigation and adds two buttons and a analog stick to your Nintendo Wii game experience.
2GB SD Memory Card
An SD Memory Card isn’t an exclusive Nintendo Wii accessory, but the SD card is a much needed Nintendo Wii accessory that allows additional content storage for lots of Nintendo Wii games. The SD card is also a must needed accessory if you ever plan to “manually enhance” (mod) your Wii gaming experience.
Playing online games with the Nintendo Wii is fun, but without the Wii Speak accessory, you’ll be a mute while playing games with friends online. Chatting with text is ok, but taking the time to type a message can really rob gamers of a great Nintendo Wii game experience. The Wii Speak microphone accessory will save gamers lots of time by allowing gamers to talk instead of type while playing online games on the Nintendo Wii.
Once just an accessory for Wii Fit, the Nintendo Wii Balance Board accessory has taken on a life all its own and is now a must have accessory for the Nintendo Wii. Exercising, skating, snowboarding, and other cool games will require a Wii Balance Board accessory and this cool balance accessory allows for full body game play.
