Default Nyko unveils Charge Station U, Pro Commander Wii U peripherals at CES 2013

In the past few years, Nyko's transformed from a third-party peripheral manufacturer of poor repute to one many gamers depend on for quality products. Devices like the Nintendo Wii Charge Station and the 3DS Power Pak+ went a long way in earning good will, and the latest slew of add-ons continues the company's recent tradition. Nyko's Charge Station U ($34.99) bolsters the standard Wii U GamePad charge stand with space for two plain Wii controllers (and includes rechargeable batteries for said Wii controllers), and its Pro Commander ($34.99) takes Nintendo's Pro Controller and swaps the awkward analog stick placement for a more traditional feel (read: like an Xbox 360 controller).

While the former adds a $15 premium to Nintendo's first-party charging stand, it also adds the ability to charge your Wii controllers at the same time (as well as giving them rechargeable batteries); the Pro Commander is not only a perfectly capable controller, it also shaves $15 off of Nintendo's $50 asking price for the first-party Pro Controller. In so many words, if you buy both of these items, you'll be spending roughly the same amount as if you had bought Nintendo's first-party equivalents, only you get more functionality. We'll have our first chance to get hands-on with both devices, as well as the previously announced UBoost, Charge Base Pro, and Power Stand, this week as CES 2013 rages on. You'll be able to get your hands-on with all five starting this February when they arrive at retailers nationwide.
