Chinese knock off received - returned.
by MommyTiger (1 out of 5 stars)
August 1, 2016

Relieved counterfeit Chinese product. No Nintendo seal and not an exact match in the button positions. The box did not match the images. Near the top of the box there was Japanese text where it should say "Nintendo " and there was almost no English writing on the box - it all appears to be Japanese. Pulled up label on the back and saw it was a product of China. Because the nunchuck had no official seal and the buttons misplaced (wrong depth) I returned the item unused.

The standard Numchuk add-on for the Wii Remote and Wii Remote Plus, compatible with the Wii and Wii
by Jacob M McNeill (4 out of 5 stars)
December 6, 2015

This is Nintendo's standard Nunchuk controller add-on for the Wii Remote. It works for both the Wii and Wii U, even though this version is packaged for the Wii U. It's also Nintendo's standard add-on for the Wii Remote, so it's kinda' a necessary accessory for Wii and Wii U owners. This is the one made by Nintendo, which I believe makes better accessories than third party companies, so if you're looking for a Numchuk, this one (or a similarly-packaged version with a different color) is going to be the way to go.

For those unaware how this works, the Numchuk attaches to the Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus. Not every game supports or requires a Numchuk, but most Wii games do, as do many Wii U games. And you'll want one pairing of Wii Remote and Wii Remote Plus for every person playing, unless someone is playing with another controller or Wii Remote combo.

That's really all there is to it.

Works great, reasonable price
by W.D. Hare (4 out of 5 stars)

My wife and I bought a WII several years ago (before we had kids), played it a few times and then it became a nice dust collector for a long spell. Fast forward 6 years and we now have three boys, ages 6, 3 and 1. We recently dusted off the WII and started playing a few games. My oldest son loves the bowling and boxing games. We only had one Nunchuck and we wanted to be able to box each other, so it was time to buy another nunchuck. I was surprised how expensive they are, but I'm guessing its because the new WII U can use the same nunchuck (which makes them still relevant). This nunchuck worked great and allowed my son and I to go at it in the WII boxing games. Its amazing how easily he can beat me; it seems we are just randomly throwing our arms around, but he must have some sort of technique because I haven't beaten him in weeks. The price of this particular nunchuck was reasonable. Some other reviews indicate it may be a knockoff. I don't know if it is or not - it says Nintendo on the box and looks legit, but I know these things can be replicated pretty easily. That said, the price was good and it works just fine so I would recommend this product if you need an additional Nintendo Nunchuk Controller.

Works as described with the Wii U and Wii
by Zero Ehxe (5 out of 5 stars)
May 26, 2018

I purchased this nunchuck controller for use with my Wii U system. It works very well, including games that use the motion controller in the nunchuck, such as The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword. And it is my favorite color, so bonus points for style. It has two trigger buttons and a thumbstick, and the cable is just long enough that you can extend your arms but not so long that it gets in the way while playing. Overall, I didn't find any flaws with this product and would recommend it to anyone who has a Nintendo Wii or a Nintendo Wii U. 5/5 stars

It's the official controller if you buy directly from Amazon
by Steve (5 out of 5 stars)
February 27, 2015

I bought this directly from Amazon, and received a sealed new official Nintendo nunchuck. To summarize, I love the product.

A couple months ago I got Mario Galaxy 2 for my Wii U which requires a nunchuck. I didn't know how much I would want to play it so at first I went with a couple of the cheap knockoff nunchucks, which can be found in multi-packs for a fraction of the price of the official product. I could play the game with the generics, however the analog sticks were really terrible, almost impossible to do anything less then "full run", or "stop", and becoming loose over time.

Now, I absolutely love Mario Galaxy 2 decided to be a completionist with it, getting every last star. Getting sick of the sloppy control from the generic nunchuck, I bout the Nintendo official product. Although they look very similar it is like night and day, tight control with the superb analog stick, and instantly improved my game.

To summarize, a generic nunchuck might be ok to explore some otherwise unplayable games with your Wii U (example, some of the levels in Nintendo Land), but the official Nintendo nunchuck is a major improvement and well worth the extra cost if you are planning to put any serious time into a nunchuck-requiring game.

This is a genuine product
by YAZAN (5 out of 5 stars)
June 20, 2014

After reading some of the reviews here claiming that this is not a genuine product, I did order it anyway and I am glad I did. This contoller had the same exact feeling as my original nunchucks that worked fine for years, and this nunchuck had been working great till now.

I just want to point out that I had problems with my games before in which characters would move by themselves, and that's why I ordered this nunchuck believing that the problem was with my original nunchucks. Well, I was wrong. The problem was still there even with this new nunchuck I ordered, which led me to believe that the problem is with the remote itself. To be clear, the remote worked fine by itself but had issues when the nunchuck is connected to it. I ordered a new genuine remote and all my problems were gone.

so for those who ordered this nunchuck and still have problems with characters moving by themselves, you should try getting a new remote. It seems that the remote can be causing this issue even if it works fine without having the nunchuck connected to it.

Beware of non-genuine products
by uberchemist (4 out of 5 stars)
June 30, 2013

Before I begin, let me just say that the Nunchuk that I received works fine (so far).

However, bear in mind that the source you receive your Nunchuk from will determine just how "genuine" it is. When I ordered mine, it was through a third-party vendor named "Pegasus Toys&Games" for $16.99. I see that, at the time of this posting, it is a different vendor. I am always concerned about getting genuine Nintendo accessories. In this case, I don't believe that is what I received. I won't go into too many specific details, but here's what I did:

I compared my original Nunchuk that shipped in the box with the console. If it was a true genuine product, everything should appear exactly the same. However, I found subtle to great differences in multiple areas with the controller I received. Take the cord as an example. One, there is a cable marking that identifies the quality/standards of the cable on the Nunchuk that I ordered; the original one is unmarked. Also, where the cable meets the base of the Nunchuk, there is a shorter length of the flexible section than on the original. Other differences, like the texture of the joystick and the pins inside the connector, make it just seem cheaper. Even the little book that comes in the box seems like it is printed on cheaper paper (not glossy like other manuals, but still has the "Nintendo seal" that "proves" its authenticity).

Though it has been working fine so far, I am disappointed that it is not quite the same thing. Yes, you can buy cheaper third-party manufactured controllers, but I was hoping to pay for the real deal. You are better off purchasing this type of thing from a big name retailer or department store (and paying the $19.99 plus tax rather than trying to save a few bucks).

Works well
by J. Moore (2 out of 5 stars)
September 26, 2013

This worked well, no problems using it with the Wii or controller. This is the official one so I'd expect no issues.
**EDIT** The above review was after one use and months ago. At the time it was a 5 star rating. I've since adjusted it.

I got this for a Christmas gift, a few months early and tried it out once and put it back in the box until Christmas time. Now that Christmas is here I've used it for a few days with the kids and it's already stopped working. Since I purchased back in September I'm out of warranty though. The Wii Remote doesn't recognize the nunchuck for more than a second or two, other nunchucks work fine for this controller. Tried different combinations of remotes and chucks and the issue is deff this device.

Clearly going with the official brand is not fool proof. Given how quickly this one quit I'll take my chances with a cheap knock off.

Double the cost?
by Joshua T. Spotz (1 out of 5 stars)
March 4, 2014

Yes, I purchased two Nunchuk's & two Remotes but for some reason they would work fine for about 1-5 minutes and then die. pulling the nunchuck out reset it but it progressively got worse and worse. eventually I gave up. Later I re-ordered two more nunchucks and now they work perfectly fine.

from the reviews I've read this seems to be a common issue. so don't be surprised if you have to order double the amount or even more! I've only been using the new and the old for about 2 months if these new ones die you will for sure be hearing back from me on an update.

Legit Nintendo brand- good quality
by Evanem (5 out of 5 stars)
September 25, 2014

I have gotten some really lame rip offs, this one is the real deal though- legit from Nintendo. I typically wouldn't advise against trying to pinch pennies where you can, but if you buy nunchucks- don't do it. If you can get it for cheap, great. But make damn sure you are getting it from Nintendo, as the 3rd party companies usually have shoddy products (madcatz, i'm looking at you) that don't last. Even worse are the backwards engineered and imitation asian produced products.
