Rumour: Limited Edition Red Wii Europe-Bound Before Christmas

Bundle gets a few tweaks
Fresh from the news that Europeans will receive Super Mario All-Stars for Wii, it looks like those lucky gamers will also receive the red Wii recently announced for Japan.
As well as containing a red Wii with matching Remote Plus and Nunchuk, Nintendo is throwing in a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii as well as an installed copy of Donkey Kong, rather than the Japanese bonus of an altered Super Mario Bros..
The decision to install Donkey Kong over Super Mario Bros. is a confusing one: after all, the point of these celebrations is to draw attention to the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., rather than Mario's first appearance. Still, it's a bundled game at the end of the day so it's hard to complain.
We don't have an official press release from Nintendo yet, so take this with a tiny pinch of salt for now until it's officially announced.
There's currently no word on when this will reach European shores, but expect to see it on shelves just in time for Christmas. We'll keep you up to date with any North American details we hear too.
