Looks like things have gotten more official on the American release of the Wii Remote Plus. The controller takes the MotionPlus attachment and bundles it right into a normal looking Wiimote. It will cost $39.99. The new model will also be included in a new red Wii bundle.
With the included copy of New Super Mario Bros it will cost you $199. Also the new 25th Anniversary red DSi XL bundle Nintendo announced last month is official too, at $179. All three launch in a few weeks, on November 7.
