Nintendo announced this morning that it will be releases its Wii Mini Console to the US in November. The Wii Mini strips away online functionality as well as other features, and allows fans of the system to play the Wii's vast library of games without the need to purchase a Wii U console.
The US bundle will include a red Wii Remote, and Nunchuck and a copy of Mario Kart Wii. This does mean that users will have to race against the console or others in their home since online gameplay has been stripped from the console. In my opinion, it would be much more beneficial to pick up a used Wii console for $100 and be able to play the same games online, but there must be a market out there for such a device or Nintendo would not have released it. What do you think about the Wii Mini? Let us know in the comments.
