Sonic the Hedgehog Gets Wii Remote Charger, Gold Rings Not Included

Mario has all the headlines this year for celebrating a notable milestone for longevity in the geeky world of video games. But Mario isn’t the only game character that has been around for a long time, Sonic has been gaming for 20 years now. My son loves Sonic the Hedgehog, and we have just about all of the Wii games and some DS games around here with the blue speedster on them.

Mad Catz has unveiled a cool new inductive charge station (PDF) for Nintendo Wii remotes. The station has Sonic standing there on his grassy knoll holding up two fingers to tell you the maximum controller occupancy for the charger.

The stand ships with a pair of rechargeable batteries and uses magnets to align the controllers for charging. You don’t even have to take the silicone case of your remotes to charge, and it will work with the Motion Plus accessories installed as well. You can find the limited edition charger over at Amazon for $39.99 (USD).
