I have info from a United States wholesaler that Pelican Accessories is developing a “Nerf-based” Wii-mote and Nunchuk. Yes you read it correctly, a NERF-based Wii-mote and Nunchuk. The following is the description for both of these products:

“A unique controller design that features a comfortable texture. Proprietary Nerf material forms into a resilient, long lasting controller that can take abuse!”

How much will they sell for? The price looks to be at $30 and $15 respectively.

Interesting if true.


You read it. You can't unread it.

If its good quality and looks decent, I would buy it, 15 cheaper then first party.

I think they are making controllers for the current gen too. But I could be wrong.

A nerf casing would be interesting. But by-and-large 3rd parties can't make decent regular controllers. I have zero faith in anyone being able to produce even a 1/2 way decent Wii controller besides Nintendo for years.

My friend's Pelican Xbox controller sucked ass. And I haven't had great expriences with Pelican products in the past either. Third party generally sucks, so I'd be wary of this.

I'm going to carry around my Wiimote with me at all times and whip people to death.

It's going to be like Pooty Tang's father.

They'll never see that shit comin'.
