Everybody just wants to slim down, and Nintendo is no exception.
Nintendo’s Wii U has been released to some pretty decent fanfare – though the technology itself is being proclaimed as rough around the edges, critical reception is for the most part positive for it’s gaming line-up. In the midst of this, a rumour has been circulating from the internal release schedule of a major retailer, according to Nintendo World Report.
They’ve reportedly found the most important details from the report, which state:
Introducing the Wii Mini! Coming Dec 7 2012!
WII MINI CONSOLE
Compact Nintendo Wii Console
Comes with Sensor Bar, Nunchuk and Wii Remote Plus with Jacket.
As noted, the Wii has already received a toned down look when Nintendo opted to remove the Gamecube components. But that they’re choosing to slim down now, in less than two weeks, is odd. Surely something like a redesign would have a lot more hype and anticipation surrounding it?
For whatever reason, this has been low on the radar. Perhaps a redesign will be arriving later than December, what with Nintendo focusing on the Wii U. Then again, what better time than the holidays for a redesign?
