Nintendo is bringing a tiny version of its last-generation console to the U.S.


Nintendo is bringing the Wii mini, a diminutive version of their 2006 Wii console, to the U.S. later this month. That's just in time for parents and grandparents to confuse it with the Wii U, the eighth generation console Nintendo released last holiday season.

The Wii mini was already available in Canada and Europe. It is red and black, as opposed to the white color scheme of the original Wii and the Wii U, and will retail for a suggested $99.99, packaged with Mario Kart Wii and a red Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller.
