Wii Light Sword: Can’t Wait

It is hard to believe that it has only been a year since the Wiimote has been released. Since then, Nintendo has made it a modern electronics icon. The way a user could use it as a sword in Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has eventually led to this.

Play.com is offering an attachment to your Wiimote with the Wii Light Sword. As you can see, it is a saber attachment for your Wii that uses 22 ultra bright LEDs. It is powered by 3 AA batteries which I am assuming is apart from the two AAs normally required to power the Wiimote.

I am assuming that whoever made this product is meant to go somewhat in tandem with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a game where a player can use their Wiimote like a lightsaber. Why not add this visual element for greater excitement? Of course, you don’t need the game to want one of these.

Of course, judging by the picture that I can see, I can’t help but wonder if the lightsaber blade looks a little…small. But the last thing you want is saber-envy, and after all: “Size matters not. Look at me, judge me by my size?”

I believe the Wii Light Sword will be available soon at a price of about $31.00. Now, if it only made the humming noises.

That is just awesome, I mean, there aren’t really any other words to describe it. I really want a Wii now just so I can play with that. 😀

Don’t fear Star Wars geeks, you’ll be able to hear the lighsabre noise via the Wii software, I’m sure.

too short to look cool, but i’m sure long enough to be annoying and produce yet more amusing wii-related injuries.

Problem is that it blocks the sensor so you can’t really swing the saber around. You still need the nun chuk to move and have to press B on the remote to swing. So it’s really only for show.
