The mini-site seems to have appeared over night, It's a typical promo mini-site that doesn't really offer a great deal of information, it talks about the main aspects of the console, the controller, backwards compatibility, Wi-Fi and its sleek design.

On the main part of the site a news article gives more information about what to expect this year from the big N.

"On an as-yet-unannounced date in 2006 Nintendo will launch its next home console, code-named 'Revolution' - which will truly spark a revolution in gaming."

Does this statement prove that we should expect Revolution in Europe in 2006 and not 2007 as some publications fear? We sure hope so.

"We already know that Revolution will let you play all your Nintendo GameCube titles and also a back catalogue of downloadable Nintendo classics. But if you think that's all there is to know about Revolution, think again... 2006 is going to be very interesting indeed."

Shiggys has already hinted that Nintendo have further tricks up their knitted sleeves, this only goes on to confirm the expectation of another Revolutionary announcement pre-launch.
