Nintendo Wii Mini coming to US

Nintendo has announced it will be bringing the Wii Mini to the United States by mid-November. The $99 stripped-down version of the Nintendo Wii debuted last year shortly after the Wii U was launched, but only in Canada. The console has since become available in other markets, including the United Kingdom in March, and with lagging Wii U sales–only spiking after Nintendo gave a huge discount–the company needs to step it up in expanding the market reach of its entry-level console.

And if you still do not have a Wii, the Nintendo Wii Mini is your only option after the company discontinued the original console. The mini console comes with one Wii Remote Plus, a nunchuck attachment, and a copy of Mario Kart Wii. It is compatible with most third-party Wii accessories.

With a compact design and a cheaper price, the Wii Mini lacks some features you would expect from the actual Wii, such as the inability to connect to the Internet and it can only play Wii optical discs. It makes sense, actually, since the lack of Internet connection would unable you to access the Nintendo eShop to purchase games.
