We interrupt our Video Game reviews to let you know that Nintendo will be releasing a limited edition Red Wii, complete with Red Wii console, Red Wiimotes (with red MotionPlus and red plastic Wiimote holder), two games (Super Mario Brothers and Wii Sports), and a red nunchuk.
The release is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros, which was released for the NES in 1985. Of course, those of us who follow video game trivia know that Mario himself was born 29 years ago in a little game called “Donkey Kong”. He’s changed his looks over the years, but that red hat always remains the same.
If you’ve been holding off on buying a new Wii, now’s a great time to jump (no pun intended). This red edition of the Wii is not going to last long, and is sure to be a collector’s item.
Here’s some late breaking news about the Red Wii.
Kmart has announced that between November 7 and November 13, members of its Shop Your Way reward program will receive a whopping 50,000 bonus points if they purchase the Red Wii. That’s a $50 value.
