CES is a huge show for hardware manufacturers and accessory producers alike, and Nyko has brought a whole lineup of Wii U peripherals to this year's show. The Charge Station U (above, right) offers a $34.99 alternative to Nintendo's dock, adding two charging slots for standard Wiimotes on the back along with rechargeable battery packs for each.
The Pro Commander (left) is Nyko's spin on the Pro Controller – the biggest change over Nintendo's optional game pad changing the analog stick configuration to mirror the Xbox 360 controller. The Pro Commander fetches $34.99 price tag, $15 cheaper than the official Nintendo peripheral.
Nyko has also brought with it previously announced Wii U accessories to CES, including UBoost – a clip-on battery pack for extra Wiipad juice – and the Charge Base Pro, which can charge up to two Pro Controllers at once. The Power Stand for the WiiPad is also on the show floor, another cradle alternative for the tablet-like controller.
Finally, there's the matter of the Party Station, Nyko's killed Wii peripheral marketed to people who both play Wii and entertain company. With Nyko announcing a lineup of new Wii U goodies, we hoped that maybe a new and improved Party Station would be unveiled for Wii U, though it appears to be more wishful thinking on our part than a real possibility. Yeah, we know – we're right there with you, just miserable about it.
