It looks like the Wii U may have some competition this Christmas, as NintendoWorldReport claim that a Wii ‘Mini Console’ will be on store shelves by December 7th this year.
The information was leaked from a major retailers internal release schedule. The “Wii Mini Console” will feature the new compact console, a Sensor Bar, remote control (motion +) and nunchuk.
Normally Nintendo re-release a console in a new bundle or colour just before the launch of a new console. The fact they would opt to do so after the Wii U launch seems a little unrealistic.
