You can more or less guess the direction of this post – your regular Wii game which simulates a match of hockey on your TV will most definitely have its experience “augmented” thanks to a scaled down hockey stick peripheral, where it boasts room for the Wiimote and Nunchuk. According to the manufacturer, this stick peripheral is sensitive enough to detect slap shots, wrist shots, body checks and poke checks, although we guess the proof is in the pudding when the game NHL Slapshot finally hits market shelves. Of course, if you prefer to dispense with silly looking add-ons, you can still play the game with a regular Wiimote and Nunchuk. Best to play in a living room as bare as the one in the image above lest you break something precious by accident!
