Wii Mini Lands in US This Holiday Season

Posted on November 5, 2013 by Jason Nason

Over here in Canada we got the little red Wii Mini last year but the little system that could is making it’s debut in the United States this holiday season.

Nintendo is launching the Wii mini console in the US and will only cost $99.99. Not only that but the system will come packed with Super Mario Kart Wii. When the system was released in Canada last December the console was released as a stand alone without a pack in game, although the Wii Mini started shipping in Canada with Mario Kart Wii as of September of this year.

If you somehow DON’T already own a Wii this is a great choice at a great value.

Canada Is Thinking Smaller With The Wii Mini On December 7

Posted on November 27, 2012 by Seung Lee

Nintendo has officially confirmed that Canada will be receiving the Wii Mini: a $99.99 version of the Wii, but with no GameCube compatibility, no Internet connectivity, and less size. The whole package will come with a red Nunchuk, a red Wiimote Plus controller, power adapter, sensor bar, and standard composite cable. Canadians can expect the Wii Mini to arrive on December 7, just in time for some early holiday shopping.

You can definitely tell that the Wii Mini is all about cashing in on the holiday shopping craze (note the red motif and cheap pricing). The strange thing is, however, that the Wii Mini (so far) will only be available in Canada this year. Will the rest of the world ever see the Wii Mini? Time will only tell, but I would rather save up, and put the cash towards a Wii U that can actually play both Wii and Wii U games, alongside a boatload of other features.
