Nintendo unveils Wi-Fi Network Adapter for Japan

It's not a hard drive. It's not a portable air conditioner. Nintendo has unveiled a wireless router/bridge for sale (in Japan) that works to connect your Wii, DS and/or PC to the interwebs. Famitsu has more shots of it, including -- gasp -- ethernet ports and a router/bridge switch. The router costs you ¥5,800 (US$53). No word on a release outside of Japan, although the Wi-Fi USB Connector has reportedly been discontinued, so it'd make sense to have this as a replacement. The Wi-Fi Network Adaptor will be available via Nintendo Japan's website on September 18.
