The Wii Remote

The Wii remote, also nicknamed "Wiimote", is the primary controller for Nintendo's Wii console. The main features of the Wii Remote are its motion sensing capability, which allows the user to interact with and manipulate items on screen via movement and pointing, and its expandability through the use of attachments.

The Wii remote is a controller for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It can either be turned sideways, like an NES controller, or be playable with the Nunchuk accessory. As an added bonus, whenever one selects a character while using a Wii Remote (Or the Wii Remote plus any attachment), the character they selected will deliver a line through the Wii Remote's speaker, such as Mario saying, "Here we go".
