Red Wii to Reach North America

On Nov. 7th, the red Wii model will be released, alongside the Wii Remote Plus, and more.

Those anticipating the launch date of Nintendo's previously revealed red Wii can rest their heads. Nintendo announced today in a press release that the new Wii color will reach North America on Nov. 7th.

Bundled inside with the new Wii will be a red Wii Remote Plus, a red Nunchuk, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Wii Sports. Nintendo did not state that Wii Sports Resort would be included in their press release. The bundle will retail for $199.99

The bundle will be a limited edition package, and will launch for Super Mario Bros. 25th anniversary. Alongside it, a red 25th anniversary edition of the DSi XL will be released, with Mario Kart DS and a few pieces of DSiWare. This bundle will hit stores for 179.99.

Also being launched that same Sunday are the Wii Remote Plus type of Wii Remotes, along with FlingSmash. The controller alone will retail for $39.99, but bundled with FlingSmash, the set will be $49.99. There was no mention of colors of Wii Remote Pluses in the press release, though a white Wii Remote Plus was pictured, as were black and red in the FlingSmash and Wii bundles mentioned, respectively.

Press Release


REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo has everyone’s holiday shopping list covered with an array of great new products. These include Mario™-red, limited-edition Wii™ and Nintendo DSi XL™ system bundles that celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros.™ game on the NES™ and a new Wii Remote™ Plus controller that has Wii MotionPlus™ motion technology built right in. Nintendo already offers tremendous video game value, and these products will make it even easier for shoppers to find fun at a great price. All new products go on sale in North America on Nov. 7, and the limited-edition products will be available while supplies last.
“Whether shoppers want to add a cool new look to their gaming setup or expand their supply of controllers with an exciting game, Nintendo offers a great value for the holidays,” said Marc Franklin, Nintendo of America’s director of Public Relations. “For anyone who is still on the fence about whether to join the world of video games, we’re offering many fun, easy, economical ways to get involved.”


The lineup of products launching Nov. 7 includes:
Red Wii Bundle: This limited-edition Wii hardware comes in beautiful red to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game. The bundle includes New Super Mario Bros.™ Wii and a new red Wii Remote Plus controller, in addition to all the other included items, like Wii Sports™ and a red Nunchuk™ controller. It will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of just $199.99.
Red Nintendo DSi XL Bundle: This special-edition Nintendo DSi XL bundle is also red in honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. and features three iconic Super Mario Bros.-themed graphics. The bundle comes with Mario Kart™ DS, which looks gorgeous on the extra-large screen. That’s in addition to the pre-loaded software of Brain Age™ Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock. It will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of just $179.99.
Wii Remote Plus: This new controller combines the original, iconic Wii Remote™ controller with built-in Wii MotionPlus functionality. The compact Wii Remote Plus controller offers players precision motion controls all in one unit. It becomes the new standard Wii controller, and will be available from now on in all Wii hardware packages and bundles, as well as sold separately at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
FlingSmash™ Bundle: The new Wii game combines the hands-on fun of tennis with the nonstop action and instant gratification of pinball. It requires use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory, so it seemed natural to bundle it with the new Wii Remote Plus controller. For a suggested retail price of $49.99, shoppers get to enjoy both the game and the controller in one package.

Remember that Wii and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://wii.com or http://www.nintendodsi.com.

Nerds Without Pants Special: The List Part 5

Oh hey, we finally got to the end of the Nerds Without Pants reading a list of every PlayStation game. In hindsight...this was a poor decision. But you guys seem to dig it, so much so that we'll be releasing a supercut of all five parts in a single episode later on. But we should really never do this again.
