New Wiimote With Inbuilt MotionPlus Inadvertently Outed

Leaked on US retailer Gamestop's website in the artwork for the FlingSmash game is the "Wii Remote Plus", which looks to be a wiimote with inbuilt MotionPlus for more accurate real-time control.

It's not surprising that Nintendo would redesign the wiimote with integrated MotionPlus, though whether they'll charge a little more for the new feature is anyone's guess. The existing MotionPlus add-on costs around $US20 and is only compatible with several titles at the moment.

Judging by the very small picture, the new wiimote looks identical to the current one, save for the curve of words around the "Wii" logo.

Gamestop has listed the FlingSmash game/wiimote bundle at $US50, with a shipping date of November 7. [Gamestop via NintendoLife via SlashGear via Kotaku]
