The recently announced Wii Mini will not have a slot for SD cards, according Nintendo World Report.
The system's lack of an SD card will prevent users from importing or exporting saves; on the regular Wiis, players could move data from the system's memory to an SD card. Polygon reported previously that the system will also be unable to play Nintendo GameCube games and does not include Internet accessibility, which keeps it from a Wii U transfer as well.
According to Nintendo of Canada's Matt Ryan, the Wii Mini and the Wii U are meant for two very different types of players. "It really depends on the experience that players want and their preferred investment in their gaming console," Ryan said. "If a player just wants to play Wii games, Wii Mini is a great choice at a great price. If the player wants more from their system, Wii U is the latest innovation of fun from Nintendo."
The Wii Mini will launch exclusively in Canada on Dec. 7 for $99. The system will come with a red Wii Remote Plus and red Nunchuck controller.
