Wii Mini Sells Over 35K Units in Canada

With the Wii Mini now heading across the pond to Europeans shore, this previously Canadian exclusive seems to be capable of putting up a good little fight on store shelves. If you recall, the Wii Mini is a stripped-down version of the Wii, with no SD card slot and no internet connectivity.

Since the system’s December 7th release in Canada, the red box had sold 35,700 units (as of January 31st). Not bad. Not great, but not bad either.

The system retailed at $99.99, and Nintendo of Canada’s Communications Manager, Matt Ryan, has commented that he believes Canadians “reacted positively to the great value the system has to offer.”

In the UK, the Wii Mini appears to be set to retail for £79.99 on Amazon UK, which is a little confusing—considering the regular Wii retails for only £4 more than that. The Mini will release in Germany on March 15th, and the UK on March 22nd.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
