Available exclusively in Canada during the holiday season
Launching for $99 on December 7, the platform holder says the compact console will be available exclusively in Canada during the holiday season.
“No information is available about its potential availability in other territories in the future,” Nintendo said in a press release.
The flat resting Wii Mini features a manual release top-loading disc tray. The console will come in matte black with a red border and be packaged with the Wii sensor bar and a red MotionPlus controller and Nunchuk.
The system has no internet connectivity options or GameCube support, but is compatible with more than 1,400 disc-based Wii games and supports “most Wii accessories”.
“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.”
