Nintendo’s ongoing celebration of the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. has already produced a retail compilation of all the previous NES Mario games (which, as you might have guessed, means that Nintendo just ported the old Super Mario All Stars compilation onto a disc), and an exclusive Red DSi XL, emblazoned with popular Mario power ups. Now, Nintendo has revealed its final step in covering the entire product line with Mario-related iconography; a Red Wii.
 

 This is what goes on in your Wii when you're not looking.

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,
 
 So... does this mean I get 25 coins when I bop them with my head?

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.

When I read the headline I imagined a slightly blander, matt shade of red but after careful consideration I can get behind this also.

This is pretty sick.  I'm getting the Super Mario Collection, for sure but I already have a Wii.

It's a "power Wii" - you bring it to business negotiations.

Super Mario Collection? Buy. Red Wii? Ehhhhh...I'll stick with my black one, and use the SMC as my personal celebration of 25 years of Mario.

I am going to buy one for my nephew.  He would love that.  Wii is great for kids. They should make them in fisher price primer colors.

Definitely getting the collection when it's released state side, but I'll pass on the red Wii. It looks nice, but I've already got one. Not to mention the black one looks cooler IMHO.

If only the front LED was white instead of blue this would be a very patriotic system. A white stripe down the side and a maple leaf sticker and this thing would be perfect. By far the snazziest paper weight they have made yet.

Theres a bug with the article (or it could just be me). When I click the image of Super Mario Bros. at the bottom of the article, rather than increasing the size of the image, the page reloads. Weird or what?

I had a red Wii once. A trip to the hospital and a few pills cleared it right up.

OH HELL, they are missing the boat on this one. Considering the market for the Wii it should be PINK!  A pink Wii would sell like hotcakes.

Maybe I'm asking too much, but I hope there is more planned for the anniversary. For the record, that's pretty cool, though

Why wouldn't they package up all of the Super Mario games, instead of just the Lost Levels?

They need to come out with the flesh-colored Wii and be done with it.

That "red" is too pink. The black one looks the slickest of the bunch imo. I'm still rocking the white one (read "rocking" as "gathering dust under my TV"). And thanks to Nintendo's baffling inability to allow you to transfer virtual purchases, I'll be keeping my white launch Wii.
