    Default Limited Edition Nyko "Kama" - Wii Wireless Nunchucks w/ reviews

    Did anyone else see this? Nyko is releasing 4 limited edition colored Wireless Nunchucks, black, grey, pink, and gold. They are releasing 300 of black and grey, 250 of pink, and 150 of the gold.

    Im usually not a crazed limited edition fan, but I picked up 2 of the black and grey, and will probably get 2 of the other colors too... mostly because I am a crazy collector. One to use, one to keep packed away

    http://www.nyko.com/kama/

    Ill be ticked if they release more than this, but we shall see!

    Why do the 'Gold' nunchucks look exactly like the black ones?

    Perfect Shot = not crap

    I'm thinking a wireless chuck with or without the Perfect Shot is at least worth a look. I'd like for it not to suck but, it might. Perfect Shot could be a fluke... who knows.

    $35 for a third-party Wii nunchuck? I'll pass.

    Oh NO! There goes my retirement strategy!

    In all seriousness though, I hope these work well. It would be neat to FINALLY have something that might be one of the R8-10 range in the future that is useful as well as obscure.

    That, and I have gotten frustrated while boxing with the damn wire between the two parts of the controller. I wish Nintendo had thought this one through a bit better when buidling them. After all, everything else is wireless... the nunchuck should have been too.

    Then it wouldn't be a nunchuck. A nunchuck is just two sticks if there is nothing attaching them.

    Well ... it can't be any worse (or absurd) than this monstrosity of an add-on :



    That's the kind of thing that is the exact opposite of "convenient".

    Bigger, heavier, needs batteries ... I'll play wired thank you.

    Saw one at the GameStop in Lyndhrust NJ today so I picked it up.







    $35.00 ... a BIT expensive, but I like novel accessories, especially if they're highly functional. This thing could be a rarity in the future, and I'm drawn to that as well.

    Takes 2 AAA batteries, which are reported to have 30+ hours of gameplay from one set. It's the same size and shape as the standard Wii Nunchuck, and I find it to be no heavier than the standard Wii Nunchuck.

    The analog stick had good action, the C and Z buttons are clear, which is a nice aesthetic touch, and they were a bit stiff, but also had good action.

    The signal broadcast dongle is about an inch, snaps into the bottom of the Wiimote and doesn't require batteries.

    The "Kama" Nunchuck includes it's own Wiimote wrist-strap, and has the notch for it on the bottom of the controller.

    Worked excellently on the three games I tried it with.

    Wii Sports - Boxing was perfect, and completely un-hindered by a wildly flailing cord between the Nunchuck and the Wiimote.

    Smash Bros. Brawl - I find the Nunchuck setup to be THE most awkward of all the Smash Bros. control setups, but everything functioned as it should have as far as I could tell.

    Mario Kart Wii - The software wouldn't recognize the wireless Nunchuck when booted, but if you insert (or remove/insert if it's already in there) the Kama's dongle into the Wiimote after the game boots, it's fine. Again, flawless control and not a bad control setup for the game.

    That GameStop is the only one I've seen it at in the wild, and they have one left if anybody is looking for one.

    I give it my recommendation if you enjoy the Wiimote control setup, but could do without the cord.

    Anybody else get one?

    the white one isnt rare or limited. only they grey, black, pink and gold were (300,300,250,150 print runs, respectively).

    i bought the gold one, its still in its box cause i hardly play my wii. i thought the stupid thing should never have had a wire, i dont care if its called a nunchuck, its stupid. shouldve been cordless from the get-go. anyway, i heard VERY good things about these, so i am very happy with my purchase, i WILL open it once i need it. if you ordered form hte website you got a letter thanking you for the limited edition purchase. they are NOT individually numbered, however.

    It's really really great.

    Between the Frontman 3 Rock Band/Guitar Hero dual-compatible guitar for PS3, the Perfect Shot light gun shell for Wii, and this, Nyko is officially my favorite 3rd party accessory company of 2007/2008!!!

    I am still waiting on my KAMA's.... unfortunately they had to go to my folks house in the States and then sent over to me via USPS since Nyko refused to ship to my FPO address via USPS.

    Once they get here, I think I may open 1, probably a grey one to try it out and use on a routine basis. The other 7 will remain packaged up for mementos, or use if I really get tired of my freindss using wired nunchucks

    I agree with Pooft! They should have always been wireless. Getting tangled up while boxing.... PIA!

    For the record, I've discovered that it's ever so slightly larger than a standard Nunchuck, and can't be used on most devices that allow for nunchuck-attachment (The Zapper and a lot of 3rd party cheap light-gun type shells).
