In the grand tradition of Nintendo adding new colours to their consoles to stimulate sales, comes the new Limited Edition red Wii! This has already been announced in other territories, but we thought we let you guys know regardless.
Onsale from November 11, the red Wii will come pre-installed with the 25th anniversary edition of Super Mario Bros., complete with a handful of interesting changes (the question mark blocks for example will have '25' inside them as opposed to '?'). The red Wii comes packaged with a red Wii Remote Plus, a red Nunchuck, and a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and, of course, Wii Sports.
In addition the three people in Australia who don't already own a Nintendo DS may be interested to note that, for a limited time only, starting November 4, any colour DSi purchased will come with a free copy of Mario Kart DS.
We tried contacting Nintendo to see if this would affect the chances of Australians receiving the 25th Anniversary Edition Super Mario Bros. disc now available in Japan, but we're still waiting to hear back.
Do any of you guys out there still not own a Wii or DS? Does this news inspire you to go out and purchase (or re-purchase) either console? Let us know below!
