Best Buy Canada jumped the gun -- they beat Nintendo to the chase and announced the release of the Wii Mini. TechCrunch reports:

“The Wii Mini is front-and-center on the Best Buy Canada Website. Nintendo hasn’t made any official announcement, and pricing details still aren’t known.”

This announcement comes on the heels of Nintendo’s November 18 release of the Wii U.

The Wii U ushers in a redesign of the Wii system. It features a touch screen to operate games rather than a remote and a smaller console.


Some analysts were a little surprised when the newest announcement was made. A writer for Ubergizmo notes:

“This is rather odd because … Nintendo has recently mentioned that development on Wii games has stopped and that they would be focusing their efforts on the Wii U, so if that is the case, why would anyone be interested in buying a redesigned console from the previous gen?”

The traditional Wii stands at a price of $129.99 while the basic Wii U set will bet you back about $300. If you want the Deluxe Set, be prepared to shell out $349.99.

TheNextWeb.com expects the Wii Mini to come with a much lower price tag. According to Best Buy’s announcement, Wii U will hit store shelves on December 7th.
