The Wii Remote, also nicknamed "Wiimote", is the primary controller for Nintendo's Wii console. The main features of the Wii Remote are its motion sensing capability, which allows the user to interact with and manipulate items on screen via movement and pointing, and its expandability through the use of attachments. In 2009, an accessory for the Wii Remote was released, the Wii MotionPlus. This gave the Wii Remote slightly enhanced motion control. In 2011, the Wii Remote Plus was released, which featured the accessory installed inside the Remote (although Brawl and Smash Wii U do not use Wii MotionPlus in any way).
As an added bonus, whenever one selects a character while using a Wii Remote (or any attachments to it, like the Classic Controller) in Brawl, the character they selected will deliver a line through the Wii Remote's speaker, such as Mario saying, "Here we go!".
