Wii Remote Plus official, MotionPlus onboard

Nintendo is releasing a new Wii remote with MotionPlus built in called the Wii Remote Plus.

While most of last night's Nintendo Conference 2010 news was aimed at the 3DS and its release date, and Game Boy Virtual Console , we also learned about a new controller for the Wii.

Just after we finished reviewing the Nyko Wand+ --the first Wii remote to pack in MotionPlus hardware onboard--Nintendo has announced plans to release its own all-in-one MotionPlus controller. We had speculated about such a device last week when a leaked photo of box art surfaced, but now Nintendo has officially confirmed the details. We imagine that the Wii Remote Plus will eventually replace the current Wii Remote and find its way into all Wii consoles sold as well.

We'll have more soon on the new Wii Remote Plus, including a release date, price, and full review.
