The system will also come with a red Wii Remote Plus controller and a red Nunchuk controller. According to Nintendo, it will carry a suggested retail cost of $99.99. The new smaller system will not have Internet compatibility either. There was no word if the system would be backwards compatible with the Nintendo Gamecube like the standard Wii console.
“Wii mini offers the same fun experience as Wii, which has been enjoyed by millions of people around the world,” Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing said in today’s press release. “And it comes packaged with Mario Kart Wii, a multiplayer Mario racing game that is one of the best-selling Wii games. At such a great price, it is an extraordinary value for shoppers this holiday season.”
