...Wii Remote Plus Additional Set Available For Non-Wii Buyers
Don't throw away your Wii accessories yet folks!
Nintendo have announced that "nearly all Wii peripherals will be compatible with the Wii U console", so Wii owners won’t need to repurchase peripherals they already own.
However, if you never bought Nintendo's original vanilla box, but rather fancy this new one, Ninty have created a Wii Remote Plus Additional Set containing a Wii Remote Plus controller, Nunchuk and sensor bar. Most Wii download software is also compatible with Wii U, meaning previously purchased WiiWare and Virtual Console titles will be transferable to the Wii U console.
No word on exceptions just yet, mind.
