Earlier today we reported about the Sega-themed blue Nintendo Wii that will be released this November. Well, it appears that Nintendo has also announced that the Wii will be arriving in another color – this time it’s going to be black. As part of the holiday bundle, the black colored Wii (with matching controllers) will come with the New Super Mario Bros. Wii and a special Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack CD.
For fans of Super Mario, or just people who haven’t gotten a Wii and are looking to buy one – this bundle seems like an attractive option. And for Nintendo – what better way to sell off an almost 5-year old console than by repackaging it in a different color and bundling it with a game that everybody likes? The Black Wii Holiday Bundle will be available next week, October 23rd, with a suggested retail price of $149.99.
