The Nintendo Wii Mini is official. After hearing about it yesterday, and just a few hours after Best Buy listed the device on its website, Nintendo is finally announcing the Wii Mini today. Nintendo redesigned its famous gaming console by making it smaller and cheaper for its customers. The Wii Mini focuses mainly on Wii games and it can play more than 1,400 disc-based Wii games. The console sports a matte black color with a red border on it and it will come with a Wii Remote Plus and a red Nunchuk controller.
It will be available on December 7 at a suggested retail price of just $99.99. Unfortunately, Nintendo says that it will only launch the console in Canada, with no word of a global launch. The Wii Mini also lacks Internet connectivity and it cannot play Nintendo GameCube games. “There are games in the Wii library for every type of player,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice president and general manager. “Wii Mini is a great gift for the holidays that brings everyone in the family together to play. Wii Mini has a mini price, but it’s all about big fun.”
