Nyko unveiled a new line of accessories for the Nintendo Wii U at International CES.
The video game peripheral developer introduced the Charge Station U, Pro Commander controller, PowerPak, UBoost, Charge Base Pro and Powerstand.
Charge Station U:
As the successor to Nyko’s original Charge Station for Wii, this new device allows users to charge one Wii U Gamepad as well as two original Wii controllers simultaneously, thanks to its separate AC power supply. The Gamepad portion of the Charge Station is adjustable to various viewing angels, making it easier to use while charging. The Charge Station U will be available in February for $34.99 in either black or white.
The Pro Commander controller provides an alternative that is completely wireless and fully compatible with all Wii U titles that have Nintendo Pro Controller compatibility. With a layout similar to that of other popular controllers, the Pro Commander is the perfect substitute for retro gamers. The Pro Commander will be available in February for $34.99 in either black or white.
This revolutionary device triples the battery life of your Wii U Gamepad without adding any extra bulk to the overall unit. By simply replacing the existing battery with Nyko’s PowerPak, players can game more and charge less. Included is a small screwdriver, which is the only tool needed to install the new PowerPak. The replacement battery is also compatible with Nyko’s line of chargers in addition to any first-party charging stations. The PowerPak will be available in February for $24.99.
As a smaller version of the PowerPak, the UBoost doubles the battery life of the Wii U Gamepad, while also doubling as a multimedia viewing stand.
Charge Base Pro:
With the Charge Base Pro, players will be able to charge two Wii U Pro Controllers simultaneously using Nyko’s patented dongle design. This allows the controllers to be held on to the vertical charging base magnetically.
Acting as a single Wii U Gamepad charging station, this device is fully compatible with the Gamepad AC power cable included with the Wii U system.
