We’re not really sure what Nintendo’s reasoning may be, but the struggling Japanese company has just launched its new gaming console: the Wii Mini. Just weeks after the much-sought after Wii U was released, Nintendo has launched a stripped-down version of the original Wii console.
To be released in Canada on December 7, the Wii Mini does not have an active Internet connection unlike its larger predecessor. The console has also been redesigned to be smaller and sleeker than the original Wii, and will come in a matte black body with glossy red accents. The package will also come with a red Wiimote and nunchuck.
The Wii Mini will retail for $99.99, but there is no word yet on international availability. But then again, we’re not really sure what Nintendo is attempting to achieve with the Wii Mini here.
