Japan Receives Red Wii in Honour of Mario's 25th

Super special limited edition on the way

Nintendo already announced a limited edition red DSi XL to celebrate Mario's anniversary, but it's also put together a very special edition Wii console for Japan only.

Not only is the Wii itself in the plumber's favourite hue of red, the Wii Remote is one of the new Wii Remote Plus designs containing MotionPlus built-in. The machine also comes with classic Super Mario Bros. built-in, but there's a twist: ? block have been changed to say 25 in honour of Mario's 25th anniversary.

The console is due out on November 11th priced at ¥20,000 (around $240/£150/€173), with no word on a Western release.
