Black Wii holiday bundle coming soon for $150
Nintendo has just announced a new Wii holiday bundle that will come to the US, unlike the 2012 London Olympics edition. The bundle centers around a black Wii and matching Wii Remote Plus controller and Nunchuck. It also adds New Super Mario Bros. Wii and an exclusive official soundtrack from Super Mario Galaxy.
The console is a version of the Family Edition without the side ports for attaching GameCube controllers or other accessories and also won't support GameCube games. Its dimensions are otherwise identical, however.
Due to arrive on October 23, the new bundle will cost $150. The regular Wii bundle, available in black or white, and with a Wii Remote and Nunchuck Plus and Mario Kart Wii with Wii steering wheel will continue to be sold alongside the entry version for the same price.
