Nintendo is bringing the Wii Mini to America for $99.99




The 2DS won't be the only curious piece of Nintendo hardware available in time for the holidays — the company has announced that it will be bringing the Wii Mini to the US later this month. The console, which has no internet capabilities and originally launched only in Canada last year, will be launching for $99.99 sometime in mid-November.

The Wii Mini also isn't backwards compatible with Nintendo Gamecube games and has no SD slot, all decisions made to make the console available at the cheapest price possible.

To sweeten the deal, it will come bundled with one of the Wii's more popular games, Mario Kart Wii. The news comes as Nintendo has stopped production of the original Wii in Japan,while the console's follow-up, the Wii U, has struggled to match its predecessor's success.

I didn't realise they weren't in the US yet. I've seen some in UK stores, and they seem okay for people with kids who just wanna play Mario and stuff.

I don't really think this is a smart move in terms of helping the Wii U at all.
Parents who are shopping will see the much cheaper price tag and be more inclined to pick this.

well, it's top-loader disc that gets me interested in
I am not sure if I want this mini Wii console as GC is incompatible & no SD card slot.

(perhaps I should get a Wii U or 360 instead)

It's cute, and I like that it has the top-loader disc as well. The color is cool too.
It would be kind of pointless for me as soon as I get a Wii U though.

I guess it's like a mini laptop. Has the basics and enough to supply for a person who doesn't want, or won't use it as much as a hardcore gamer.

gamerluce is an unknown quantity at this point

Hmm...not sure if this was a good decision. Nintendo should concentrate on the Wii U now.
