Is a Wii Mini on the way?

An unsubstantiated rumour has suggested Nintendo will unveil a second new console before Christmas.

Nintendo World Report claims to have word from an internal release schedule from a major retailer” that it says it is unable to disclose”. In it is mentioned a SKU including a Wii Mini console, sensor bar, nunchuk and Wii remote Plus.

A release date of December 7th is mentioned.

The Wii has previously undergone a very slight redesign that made the unit smaller at the expense of a few ports being lost. But this is the first talk of a ‘proper’ redesign along the lines of the Xbox 360 S or either of the PS3 Slims.

Still, unless the claims are backed up from other sources MCV advices extreme scepticism.
