Wii Mini will release in the UK on March 22, Nintendo has announced.

The miniaturised Wii console, which was previously only available to buy in Canada, will be available in a red and black design, and come bundled with a red Wii Remote Plus and red Wii Nunchuk.

A price for the console has not been revealed, but it's worth remembering that Nintendo UK doesn't typically set prices for its hardware, instead leaving retailers to set the price.

Wii Mini launched in Canada in December for $99.99 CAD (£64.31). The revised console offers a slightly smaller design than the original Wii, but also lacks some of its functionality.

Wii Mini does not include online functionality, meaning players will not have access to the Wii Shop Channel and be restricted to offline play.

The revised console also drops GameCube backwards-compatibility and only provides composite video output.

To celebrate the console's arrival, a selection of Wii titles are also set to join the Nintendo Selects range "in time for launch", including Mario Party 8, Wii Sports Resort, Mario Party Tennis and Super Paper Mario.

Each title should retail for around £19.99.

That would look quite nice as a display statue actually.

Anyways I've said it before and I'll say it again - this thing would actually be an okay investment if they had added HDMI support and software up-rezing, as well as enhanced support for downloads. But, as it is with its current specs I just don't see the point.

Wow! day one purchase please................................Joke

What is the point! Anyone who is strangely after a wii at this point would surely opt for a cheap used one.

This is probably the most un-needed redesign of a console ever. Worse still this one doesn't even come with a copy of Wii sports, which is ridiculous. I might of said it was worth it for one of the few families who still don't own this yet, but when it lacks Wii sports as a bundle, then there is no point. Just buy a used normal one...

Wow. Because I was concerned that the area for dust storage on my old Wii was too large.
