Nintendo have confirmed that the Wii will be getting a huge price cut come mid-May. On May 15th, US gamers will be able to pick up a console for $149.99, which will come bundled with Super Mario Kart Wii and a steering wheel rather than the previous Wii Sports (Resort) bundles.
The same bundle will be available here for £129.99 (£50 down on current RRP - though this varies from merchant to merchant) from May 20th.
The date will also see the introduction of a new line of reissued games - much like Sony and Microsoft respective Platinum and Classics ranges - called Nintendo Selects at a reduced rice of £19. The first five titles to be announced in the range, launching over here on the 20th, will be Wii Sports, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Mario Strikers Charged Football and Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City.
