Japan Gets a Sweet Red Wii
by Matt Kessler on
If it was a good enough color for the N64, it's good enough for the Wii.
The Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Wii replaces the iPod white plastic of the standard Wii with shiny red plastic, which is perfect because Mario has a red hat! The recolored Wii ships with a Wii Remote Plus (that's the Wii remote with the Motion Plus add-on built in) and Nunchuk attachment also in matching red plastic.
Finally, and perhaps most interestingly, the new Wii package will ship with a built in game called 25th Anniversary Super Mario Bros, which looks like a version of the original Super Mario Bros updated with some anniversary messaging. Siliconera revealed an image of the updated game, but the only difference that can bee seen so far is that the classic question mark blocks have been replaced with “25 blocks.” Whether there are any other changed being made to the original game is unclear,
The red Wii is currently set to retail in Japan for 20,000 yen ($242). While both the Anniversary DS and Wii consoles have only been announced for a Japanese released, Kotaku reported today that the Super Mario Collection set would be making its way to Europe on December 3rd. Hopefully, a stateside hardware announcement is coming soon, because that red Wii is suspiciously fresh.
