'Wii Mini' reportedly set for release on December 7

Second system redesign rumoured

Nintendo may be planning to release a redesigned Wii console as soon as next month.


Nintendo World Report claims to have received access to an internal release schedule from a major retailer stating that Wii Mini is set to launch on Friday December 7, 2012.

The compact console will reportedly be bundled with a Wii sensor bar, Nunchuk and Wii Remote Plus.

A Nintendo UK representative told us this morning that the company doesn't comment on rumour and speculation.

Nintendo released a streamlined Wii console last November. Unlike the original, the newer system isn't compatible with GameCube software or accessories. It also sits horizontally rather than vertically.
