Game giants Nintendo have announced a release date for their Wii Mini to launch in the UK and Europe. The new mini console has already been released in Canada a couple of months back. Now it will get it’s big day on European shores where it is estimated to do well with regards to sales.
The official date set is March 22nd, so potential buyers can jot that date down in their diary for good measure. A price has not been set by Nintendo as of yet, but the price of the Wii Mini in Canada was $99 upon release. So you should expect the console to sell for around about £65 in the UK.
A Nintendo Selects software collection has also been announced to celebrate the release in Europe.This will include Mario Party 8, Super Papa Mario, Mario Power Tennis and Wii Sports Resort.
The Wii Mini is a compact gaming console that was released by Nintendo in December 2012. It is a smaller and more affordable version of the original Wii console that was first introduced in 2006.
Like the original Wii, the Wii Mini allows players to use motion controls to play games. However, it does not include many of the features that were present in the original Wii, such as online connectivity, backwards compatibility with GameCube games, and SD card support. The Wii Mini also does not include a sensor bar, which means that players need to purchase one separately in order to use the console’s motion controls.
Despite its limitations, the Wii Mini was popular among casual gamers and families who were looking for an affordable and accessible gaming console. It was sold at a lower price point than the original Wii, making it an attractive option for those who were on a budget.
The Wii Mini was released exclusively in Canada initially, before being made available in Europe in March 2013. However, it was not released in other regions such as Japan and the United States.
One of the benefits of the Wii Mini is that it is compact and easy to transport, making it a great choice for gamers who are on the go. It also includes a red and black colour scheme, which sets it apart from the original white Wii console.
In terms of games, the Wii Mini is compatible with most Wii games, though it does not support online play or downloadable content. Players can still enjoy a wide range of games, including popular titles such as Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Wii Sports.
While the Wii Mini may not have all of the features of the original Wii, it remains a popular console among casual gamers and families who are looking for an affordable and accessible gaming experience. Its compact size and lower price point make it an attractive option for those who are new to gaming or who are looking for a more affordable alternative to other consoles on the market.
