From the makers of the Game Boy Micro comes the Wii Mini. Nintendo announced that this Canada Exclusive console will be released in the Great White North on December 7th for $100 dollars. So besides the AV cables(composite), console, sensor bar, and Wiimote + Nunchuk, what else do you get? Nothing. In fact, according to this blip, you might be missing out more than just a bundled in game.
The Wii mini console does not connect to the Internet and does not support online features in games.
Compatible with Wii software and accessories. Internet connectivity features are not available.
The Wii mini console is not compatible with Nintendo GameCube Game Discs or accessories.
So no internet access or Gamecube backwards capabilities. My suggestion, if you don’t have a Wii already and wish to purchase one, you should lean towards getting an older model (with Gamecube games playability) or opt for a Wii U (if you can find one).
No word on whether this is coming to the US, but if it doesn’t I don’t think we’ll be missing out on much.
