Mario and Luigi Themed Wii Remotes, Yahoo!


On November 1st, Nintendo will be launching new Wii Remote Plus designs themed after Mushroom Kingdom heroes Mario and Luigi, both to sell for $39.99.

The Wii and Wii U compatible controllers mimic each bro’s costume. The top half of the Mario case is red with an encircled ‘M’ logo over the built-in speaker while Luigi’s is green with an ‘L’ logo. Like their overalls, the bottom half of both remotes is blue.

I’m already stocked up with enough Wii Remotes at the moment, but if I ever need a replacement I’ll definitely be choosing one of these.
