Nintendo announces that a newly configured Wii console will be available late October 2011.
The streamlined Wii console has been designed to sit horizontally on a flat surface, rather than vertically as the original Wii did. It will come in sleek black, or white, packaged with Mario Kart Wii, a Wii Wheel, Nunchuk and Wii Remote Plus, all for the same low price of SRP $199.95* - there has never been a better time to join in the fun this Christmas.
Wii has some great new titles out now including Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident and Xenoblade Chronicles. The highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will also be available on Wii in time for Christmas when it launches 24 November. Go Vacation on Wii will be available November and Kirby's Adventure Wii in December.
Unlike the original Wii, the new Wii configuration will not be compatible with Nintendo GameCube software and accessories.
