Zeemote Launches Nunchuck for Mobile

February 11th, 2008 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Gaming Gear | No Comments »

Zeemote has released the Zeemote JS1, a wireless controller much like
Nintendo’s Nunchuck device. The bluetooth joystick should enrich the
gameplay experience.

With the analogue stick / joystick, gamers have more control over their mobile games. The device is pretty unique though Commodore Gaming once showed us a gamepad based on the same principle.

“Developers, operators, and gamers tell us the Zeemote JS1 controller is what they’ve been waiting for to unleash the real potential of mobile gaming,” said Beth Marcus, CEO, Zeemote, Inc. “We’re already in discussions with a number of operators and manufacturers regarding bundling the controller with games and handsets.”

At the recent Mobile Games Forum 2008 in London, Mike Yuen, senior director of the gaming group for Qualcomm, commented, "The Zeemote JS1 is one of the most innovative devices to come along for mobile gaming, as it greatly helps improve game playability on mobile phones versus traditional d-pads. I look forward to the commercial launch of the product later this year."

Several publishers and developers already made their games compatible to the Zeemote.
