Original story: A 'Mini' version of the Wii arrives on December 7, if a listing on Best Buy Canada is accurate. The retailer's front page currently shows an image introducing the 'Wii Mini,' advertising the black console with red trims as coming on said date. There's also a pre-order link, although clicking it only takes you to the site's Wii Page, with no Mini in sight.
The listing follows Nintendo World Report saying it spotted the petite version of the 2006 console in a major retailer's internal release schedule. According to NWR, the unnamed retailer's info lists the same details as Best Buy Canada, and in addition says the console comes with a sensor bar, Nunchuk, and Wii Remote Plus with jacket.
We reached out to Nintendo for confirmation of the new console version. A company rep responded, saying Nintendo doesn't comment on rumor or speculation.
