Further Looks at the Upcoming Wii Mini

Via Official Nintendo Magazine, fellow Canadian gaming website GameFocus has a new article which highlights Nintendo’s new Wii Mini, which is poised for released exclusively in Canada in just a few more days. There, you can see the size of the Mini alongside a regular Wii, as well as shots of the open drive and various angles.

In the end, they don’t recommend purchasing it over the regular Wii, which has more features, comes with a game, and only costs $30 more. However, if you’re interested in a red Wii Remote and Nunchuk combo, this is probably the best way to get them, as other means will reportedly cost you as much or more to acquire.

In a statement to Nintendo World Report (also via ONM), Nintendo of Canada’s Matt Ryan explains that “they are two very different products for a different type of player. It really depends on the experience that players want and their preferred investment in their gaming console. If a player just wants to play Wii games, Wii mini is a great choice at a great price. If the player wants more from their system, Wii U is the latest innovation of fun from Nintendo.”

This came with the news that the Wii Mini will apparently not support SD cards, making the prospect of transferring the save files of games which support the feature impossible.
