The Wii Mini, announced. Wow.
Yeah, look at it, look into it. Take your time and just take in how beautifully crafted this piece of art is. Wow. No one's judging.
The Wii U is the successor to Nintendo's Wii but the company is yet to give up on their original motion control console launched back in 2006. Nintendo has released a press statement officially announcing that after 6 years in the market, the original Wii is set to go from big to mini, from white to red (and black).
The Wii Mini will similarly boast the iconic Wiimote and Nunchuck controller, and will be able to play up to 1,400 Wii games which includes all the more popular titles like Mario Kart Wii, Wii Sports Resort and New Super Mario Bros.
However, there is a catch. The Wii Mini has no Internet capabilities and will not play GameCube games. Also, up till now, it seems that despite how awesomely-beautiful this console is, it may only be exclusive to Canada. Retailing from the 7th of December, it's suggested retail price is only $99.99 as according to Nintendo, it is primarily aimed for the holiday season as well as for first-time Wii owners "who just want to jump in and experience".
Ron Bertram, Nintendo Canada’s vice president and general manager also expressed that “there are games in the Wii library for every type of player", adding that the "Wii Mini has a mini price, but it’s all about big fun.”
*We'll be updating you if Nintendo decides to release the Wii Mini to other parts of the world including Malaysia, any countries in South East Asia or Australia.
