Princess-Themed Wii Remote Plus Coming at the End of April

We know many of you out there love the Mario and Luigi themed Wii Remote Plus controllers, and we know you went straight to the store as soon as they were available and bought one of each. We also know many of you sat at home crying, because you felt left out. “Where is the Princess Peach Remote,” you asked. Well, guess what we woke up to this morning… No, it was not Princess Peach, but it was a Wii Remote Plus controller themed after this princess, who is full of bad luck. Starting at the end of April, you can play as the Princess in Super Mario 3D World with your Princess remote. Then, at the end of May, you can do the same in Mario Kart 8. The world is now a better place.

Nintendo News: Nintendo Gives Wii Remote Plus Controller the Royal Treatment

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nintendo hereby announces a new Wii Remote Plus controller styled in the royal fashion of Princess Peach. The pink controller features many touches that pay homage to the Mushroom Kingdom’s most powerful heroine, who recently starred in the Super Mario 3D World game for the Wii U console. The new controller includes a crown design over the speaker, blue buttons that echo Peach’s royal jewelry and a golden-yellow plus pad that evokes her regal crown.

The new Peach Pink Wii Remote Plus will start appearing in stores in late April at a suggested retail price of $39.99. It joins other controllers themed to Nintendo characters, including the red Mario and green Luigi controllers. Wii Remote Plus includes Wii MotionPlus technology, and works with all Wii and Wii U games that call for Wii Remote controllers. Fans of Mario Kart 8 might want to pick up the new remote to control Peach when the game launches May 30.
