The store's site features an image of the new-look console, which appears to be more akin to a set-top box than the old design. Sadly, clicking the image itself currently takes you to the Wii section of the site, with no more info or images - or even the option to pre-order.
We've since contacted Nintendo for clarification, and were predictably told that the company doesn't comment on rumour and speculation.
Do you think Nintendo could be onto something with a small, more compact Wii - especially as set-top boxes and video streaming services are picking up pace these days? Or could the release of a new-look Wii confuse shoppers, what with the Wii U hype train in full force? Drop us some thoughts in the comments field below.
