Nyko’s New Line of Wii U Accessories [Updated]

More Wii U gadgets are on the way from Nyko according to a press release they put out this morning. Below are the full descriptions and images the company has released.


UBoost – Add 2x the battery life to the Wii U GamePad with this simple clip-on extended battery. The UBoost attaches to the back of the GamePad controller, with no tools or modification to the GamePad required, and works in conjunction with the internal battery to prolong playtime upwards of 10 hours. A built-in stand also allows for easy viewing of streaming content on the device with no dock required. Users can easily recharge both the UBoost and the internal battery of the GamePad with the GamePad AC adaptor included with the Wii U, and even place it in the charging dock that ships with the Wii U Deluxe. The UBoost is available later this year in both white and black for a MSRP of $19.99.

Charge Base Pro – Easily store and charge 2 Wii U Pro Controllers with the Charge Base Pro. Simply attach Nyko’s patented magnetic charge adaptors to the Mini USB port on the Pro Controller, and then place the controller onto the magnetic charging port. The magnets will automatically pull the controller into the correct position, while artfully suspending the controller in the vertical dock. LED Indicator lights notify users when the charge cycle is complete while the collapsible design of the dock makes it easy for travel or storage when not in use. The Charge Base Pro is powered through an AC power adaptor providing faster charge than USB. The Charge Base Pro will be available this holiday season for a MSRP of $29.99.


Power Stand - Available in both white and black, the Power Stand holds the Wii U GamePad while also recharging the internal batteries of the controller. The stand utilizes the contact charging points on the GamePad allowing for easy drop and charge functionality. The dock features an angled stand ideal for viewing movies and is powered by the GamePad power adaptor that ships with Wii U. The Power Stand will be available this year for a MSRP of $14.99.

Charge Adaptor – Charge the Wii U GamePad anywhere in your house with the Charge Adaptor. The Charge Adaptor plugs into any standard AC wall outlet, and quickly recharges the GamePad. The extra-long cord allows for easy charging even while playing your favorite Wii U games while the Velcro┬« strap provides an easy storage solution when not in use. The Charge Adaptor will be available in time for the Holidays for a MSRP of $14.99.

Charge Link – Conveniently charge the GamePad from the Wii U console or any other powered USB port with the Charge Link. The Charge Link’s extra-long cord provides the freedom to play while charging from the console and the Velcro┬« strap provides tangle free storage when traveling. The Charge Link is the ideal way to power the GamePad when playing and is available now for a MSRP of $14.99.

 

Although Nyko has announced these new accessories, they failed to mention one that has popped up on a few online retailers such as GameStop and BJs, the Nyko Play Stand as seen below.

UPDATE: Nyko has responded to my inquiry about the Nyko Play Stand and say this was simply a concept design they were pitching to retailers. Due to lack of interest, however, it was cancelled.
