Back when the Nintendo Wii launched in 2006, the company showed possible console colors: White, red, silver, lime green and black. White was the launch colour, and that's all customers have had. Until now.
Today, Nintendo announced that it will be launching a black-coloured Wii in Japan on August 1 for ¥25,000 ($A324). Besides the console, Nintendo will be selling black DS peripherals as well. They are priced as follows:
• Black Wii Remote ¥3,800 ($A49) • Black Nunchaku ¥1,800 ($A23) • Black Classic Controller Pro ¥2,000 ($A26)
The white coloured Wii went on sale on December 2 in Japan when the platform initially launched.
