Often addressed as Wiimote.
Dolphin emulator can use Wii Remote and its expansions directly with regular bluetooth pairing.[1]
Controllers sensor requires sensor bar. Official wired variant will require power from Wii or Wii U, however wireless versions are available.
Hard to use as regular controller outside Wii emulation.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.

Steam Link compatibility[edit]

Incompatible controller. It's detected, but not working. [2]



Most noticeable feature in Wii Remote is ability to plug in additional expansions to controllers port, which change controllers behaviour.
Most Wii Remote addons, including Racing wheel, Zapper and many third party products, are mostly plastic cases for the controller and doesn't effect controller itself technically.


Motion Plus[edit]

Some later variants of Wii Remote have this feature build into the controller.

Classic controller[edit]

There's also available Classic Controller Pro. These have some design differences to each other, but are technically same outside L and R buttons being digital instead of analog on Pro variant.
