Nintendo Wii Mini Coming to UK on 22 March

Under £100 but no online functions

Nintendo has announced that the Wii Mini will be joining its Wii and Wii U consoles in the UK on 22 March. It's expected to sell for around £80.

After initially launching the Wii Mini in Canada, Nintendo is now due to bring its Wii Mini console to the UK. Although the official price is still to be confirmed, this latest take on the Wii is expected to sell for under £100—which sounds about right given its scaled-down tech specs compared with the original Wii.

The Wii Mini will be available in red and ships with a Nunchuk and a Wii Plus controller, although you won't be able to use any online functions unless you shell out for an optional adapter. As well as being stripped of Internet connectivity, the Wii Mini has lost the SD card reader and GameCube compatibility. The slot-in disc drive has been ditched too.

Note that Nintendo will continue to sell its original Wii console and Wii U alongside this Mini model.
