“That is the first I’ve heard of it (Wii Mini). I agree that it may have been better to bring it out when the Wii was still popular, but Nintendo might have a strategy to keep the Wii alive. They apparently sold 300,000 Wiis last week globally, so the console isn’t quite dead yet.” - Michael Pachter
I'm interested in seeing if the Wii Mini makes its ways around the rest of the world. I doubt Canada is going to be the only place to get this mysterious revamp.
