Perhaps you're in the market for another Wii Remote Plus? If so, Nintendo has two new special controllers for you to consider. Both Mario and Luigi-themed controllers will be available on November 1st for $39.99 each. And because they're the latest model, they include MotionPlus tech built-in, so there's no worry about which games they'll be compatible with.

Wii Remote controllers work with both Wii and Wii U. However, if you don't want a special edition controller, there are two cheaper options for you to consider.

As previously announced, the retail version of Wii Party U will include a Wii Remote Plus controller. Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will also partake in this promo. The digital game-only release will cost $49.99, while a bundle including a Wii Remote Plus controller will be available at retail for $59.99--making the controller effectively cost $10. These are two options for you to consider should you need to stock up on controllers.
