Red Wii and DSi XL Coming Stateside on November 7th

Posted by James Newton

Roll up, roll up!

Those of you holding your breath for North American release confirmations of the Red Wii, red DSi XL and Wii Remote Plus, you can breathe out now

Coming Stateside on November 7th, the red Wii comes with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Sports and a red Remote Plus and Nunchuk, but like its European counterpart doesn't come with MotionPlus-enabled pack-in Wii Sports Resort.

The red DSi XL, as leaked by Walmart, comes with Mario Kart DS and DSiWare trio Photo Clock, Brain Age Express: Math and Brain Age Express: Arts and Letters pre-installed on the system.

Wii Remote Plus also lands on the same day, available in black, white, blue and pink for $39.99.

Lastly, the long-awaited FlingSmash will make its first appearance on – you guessed it – the same day, November 7th.

Will you be picking up any of these delightful new treats?

Red Wii Bundle: This limited-edition Wii hardware comes in beautiful red to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game. The bundle includes New Super Mario Bros.™ Wii and a new red Wii Remote Plus controller, in addition to all the other included items, like Wii Sports™ and a red Nunchuk™ controller. It will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of just $199.99.

Red Nintendo DSi XL Bundle: This special-edition Nintendo DSi XL bundle is also red in honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. and features three iconic Super Mario Bros.-themed graphics. The bundle comes with Mario Kart™ DS, which looks gorgeous on the extra-large screen. That’s in addition to the pre-loaded software of Brain Age™ Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock. It will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of just $179.99.

Wii Remote Plus: This new controller combines the original, iconic Wii Remote™ controller with built-in Wii MotionPlus functionality. The compact Wii Remote Plus controller offers players precision motion controls all in one unit. It becomes the new standard Wii controller, and will be available from now on in all Wii hardware packages and bundles, as well as sold separately at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

FlingSmash™ Bundle: The new Wii game combines the hands-on fun of tennis with the nonstop action and instant gratification of pinball. It requires use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory, so it seemed natural to bundle it with the new Wii Remote Plus controller. For a suggested retail price of $49.99, shoppers get to enjoy both the game and the controller in one package.

LuWiiGi said:

Well, what a surprise. After all the moaning of the Americans, it turns out you get the deal when we do AND it's even better!

EDIT: I read it wrong, the deal is exactly the same.



Ron_DelVillano said:

WHAT? Now it doesn't even come with Mark Kart? These chumps at Nintendo need to make up their minds before I spend any more of MY hard earned dollars on them!



Rapadash6 said:

Well, we still have the Mario All-Stars thing to be announced too, remember. I'm sure it'll be any day now though.



bboy2970 said:

Thank goodness! Now all we need is the anniversary collection. I think it would be a little odd if Nintendo didn't give us the most obvious 25th anniversary item...



KyubiStewie said:

@bboy2970 they haven't said anything about not releasing Super Mario All-Stars just yet. There's still a chance that it might come here.



sykotek said:

Told you so.

Now the only thing left that I'd wanna know pertains to the data on my current Wii and DSi. Can anyone ask Nintendo if they'll be transferrable to the anniversary units? I think that would matter to most people here that are considering purchasing these units. Thanks in advance.



bboy2970 said:

@sykotek: Let me save you the trouble: no, you can't. I tried the same thing when the black Wii came out. The only way you'll get your data transfered to a new console is if the current one is busted. And even then I'm sure they would just give you the same color you had. I personally am just buying this system as a shelf piece, never to be opened.



TingLz said:

Here's a solution: beat up your Wii, claim it was an accident, send them both Wii consoles (including the red one) and tell them to switch the data over. It's sure to succeed!

PS: I take no responsibility for any mishaps



JebbyDeringer said:

How many are they making? With such a wide release it's not going to be all that collectible. It's not like a Mother 3 Gameboy Micro.



pixelman said:

Man that red DSi XL is really tempting, especially with my DS lite's hinge being broken and Golden Sun coming out soon. I already have MKDS, so I wonder how much I could get for selling a brand new copy? Hmmm. It's hard to justify buying it when the 3DS is coming out in a few months.



mjc0961 said:

@3: No it's not, screw all this red crap. I want to know where the Mario collection is.



LuWiiGi said:

So you all complain about not getting the Red Wii, then when you do get it, you don't want it?



WarioFan63 said:

Side note: Wii Remote Plus colors for America will be White, Black, Pink, and Blue. The Press Room has images of them so that's like an implied confirmation.



ReddLionz said:

It would be cool if we could buy the red Wii Remote Plus separately. but i guess we'd have to buy another Wii. Well, I can get another one. Who doesn't have two Wii's anyway? well, actually, no, I probably won't get another Wii, once I think about it



Punny said:

Yes! Yes! YES! Bring on Super Mario All-Stars Special Pack and I'm all set!



Caliko said:

These bundles are ok.

The DS should've came with New Super Mario Bros, seems strange to celebrate Mario with Mario Kart DS.

And the Wii bundles doesn't come with Wii Sports Resort, yet comes with the Wii Remote Plus when ironically you don't need MotionPlus to play either game.

I still praise Nintendo for replacing the old remotes, hopefully this will push more and more developers to make MotionPlus a standard.



PaperLucario said:

Man I want both the red wii and dsi XL, just how will i be able to afford it!? (i guess its time to look for a job)



Sonic1994CD said:

Yes now we just need to get the super mario all stars pack and good club nintendo stuff like the snes controller.



smileisles said:

Yaaaaaaay!!!! I have been waiting expectantly for this announcement! Fingers crossed for the Mario All Stars Collection....



SuperMarioFan96 said:

Will probably get FlingSmash w/ WiiMote+, although if there's a cheaper option w/o the WM+ I might go for that instead, but it doesn't look like there is.



sillygostly said:

I know this was a given, but Super Mario All-stars has been OFLC rated, thus confirming a local release here.



Pj1 said:

I'm Happy for North Amercia, At last guys!! all you need now is Super Mario All-Stars!! I bet you that will be announced soon. I am actually happy for Noth Amercia and I live in the UK.

fishman100 You will celebrate two Birthday's! ENJOY



Gamesake said:

I knew I should have waited to buy a Wii. Really sad they aren't going to at least sell the red Wiimote plus separately.



RedYoshi999 said:

What did we tell you Americans? You got everything you moaned about minus SMAS which will be announced soon enough. I would kill for that red remote but we dont have it here.



XD375 said:

So no mention of a preloaded game? (Japan got a 25th Anniversary ROM hack, Europe got Donkey Kong.)



Rerun said:

Well time to save up to get both! I won't be opening either one though.



super-nintendo said:

Hotcakes are These will all sell tons. I might have to import the RED Wii Remote Plus controller. I have my account ready so I will put in the order soon.



Pj1 said:

@ ReRun I'd like to buy the two packs too!

Can't wait I'm hoping my local supermarket will stock these, I can spend my loyailty points only for one of them.



NintendoWorld1 said:

I'm surprised that Nintendo didn't announce Super Mario all-Stars as a footnote to the 'red' announcement. I can't believe that they havn't included a built in game but come on North Amercia this is great NEWS for you guys! i'd like to know what Nintendo will do about the black Limited Edition Wii's. I would like to buy a red Wii but I'm worried that the big N will announce blue Wii's next year, I'd rather have a blue one. I'm not sure how long Nintendo can keep bringing out new colours...



jayo said:

I think the red DSi XL should've also been pre loaded with the Mario Clock and Calculator. Well, the SMAS Anniversary set is coming out in Europe, the special edition DSi XL and Wii are coming out there and here, so a US release of All Stars seems much more likely!



jayo said:

@NintendoWorld1 -I'd also like a blue Wii, though I like this red one! Heck, I'll take any color offered other than white! But I already have a Wii and it works fine!



rjejr said:

What Caliko said:

And the Wii bundles doesn't come with Wii Sports Resort, yet comes with the Wii Remote Plus when ironically you don't need MotionPlus to play either game.

My mother is buying my sisters family a Wii for Christmas and I'm not sure I'ld tell her to get this one over the black one with Sports resort.

Is WiiRemotePlus listed anywhere yet for $39.99? I still haven't opened my blue and pink $49.99 controllers yet and I'ld return them to save $10 each and not deal with the Plus cover during battery exchange.



JulioMorataya said:

What does the "Mario Game Included" sticker stands for ?? NSMBW ?? or the 25th Anniversary NES SMB ??



Capt_N said:

Thanks Nintendo, but I won't purchase another console I already have, until I can move/migrate my data to my newer console. Work on that, then see me later.

It's good we NA gamers finally got this stuff. All-Stars may be around the corner, just yet. Shame it's just a rom of All-Stars on a disk. I'll still want it, though.

Edit: I'll probably get it w/ a partial gift card I still have from my b-day.



PSICOffee said:

This red wii should have been released at launch. Then I would have gotten it. I'd love to get it now if I could transfer all those hundreds of $ worth of downloads.



Caliko said:


If ur still reading. That's a tough choice between those 2 bundles. Depends on whether there more into motion sports games or if they grew up with mario games.

And yes it's been confirmed that Wii Remote Plus will retail for $39.99! Great value.



TheLonelyGamer said:

Darn, too bad we didn't get the All-Stars game. The DSi XL and red Wii are awesome, but I am not going buy something I already own (though I have a DSi, not an XL).



Nintendo-is-my-love said:

WHY they dont deserver it they just complained and bagged nintendo coz they didnt get it australia deserves it when is it coming it here



Rapadash6 said:

Well it's been a few days since this was announced but still no mention of All-Stars from NOA. It's really a shame because I have very fond memories of playing that game and I would've definately bought the collectors pack, as I'm sure many of you would have also. Nintendo, you really, REALLY suck.
