Nintendo believes that Nyko violated its patented design by using the Nunchuk name.

Nyko, known for their high-quality third-party accessories, have been promoting the accessory as the true first wireless Wiimote controller attachment. This device is an alternative to the first-party Nunchuk and makes it wireless.

This means there is no cord between the Wiimote and Nunchuk during play.

Nintendo has asked for a court order to tell Nyko to stop selling the wireless controller, priced at $39.99.

Denise Kaigler, VP of Nintend of American stated “While Nintendo supports the creation of innovative games and products used with our game systems, we cannot allow third parties to infringe our intellectual property rights.”

Nyko does not appear ready to back down to Nintendo as of yet.
