Wii Mini: “no plans to launch it in the UK”, says Nintendo

Friday, 30th November 2012 09:33 GMT By Dave Cook

Wii Mini was outed earlier this week as an exclusive launch console for Canada, and a Nintendo rep has confirmed that the smaller Wii model will not launch in the UK. Get the details below.

Speaking with CVG, the Nintendo rep clarified the company’s stance on Wii Mini, “We have no plans to launch it in the UK. Our focus here is all about Wii U.”

The announcement of Wii Mini has baffled many gamers, as it launches across Canada from December 7th at a lower price-point of $99.99. It has no internet features or backwards compatibility with GameCube titles. For a full rundown on the console, check out our coverage from earlier in the week.

Is Nintendo missing a trick here? Let us know below.

    Probably a wise move, as I doubt anyone in the UK was planning to buy one.

    Unless by “missing a trick” you mean potentially missing an opportunity to fool some people into buying this inferior Wii, in which case, maybe they are.
