Starting May 15th, you will be able to get either the black or white Wii console for a new low price of $149.99 which includes Mario Kart Wii and a matching colored Wii Wheel accessory. This will be replacing the previously included Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort games.
Also on May 15th, Nintendo will be launching it’s new Nintendo Selects collection of Wii games for $19.99. Currently only four are announced. That being The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers and Wii Sports.
“From the day it launched, Wii has let players of all ages and experience levels have fun with one another,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “The new suggested retail pricing for both the hardware and select games will help create more of these magical moments for even greater numbers of people.”
With Mario Kart Wii now included with the Wii hardware, players will be able to enjoy fun go-kart racing with Mario and all his Mushroom Kingdom pals right out of the box. The Wii Remote™ Plus controller, Nunchuk™ controller and Wii Wheel included in the package will all match the hardware, meaning they will be either black or white. The new black Wii Wheel will also be available separately at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
