Wii Mini coming to U.S. this month, bundled with Mario Kart Wii

The Wii Mini will launch in the U.S. this month, Nintendo of America announced today.

The scaled-down version of Nintendo's previous generation console is currently only available in Canada and Europe, where it launched last fall and earlier this year, respectively. According to a press statement, the Wii Mini will launch "by the middle of November," cost $99 and come bundled with a Wii Remote Plus, nunchuk and a copy of Mario Kart Wii.

Nintendo states that availability of the Wii Mini will "differ somewhat according to location."

The Wii Mini lacks a handful of features present in the Wii, which launched back in 2006. Players can't play GameCube games on the Mini or connect to the internet, and there is no SD card slot and only one USB port. Nintendo of Canada explained to Polygon last year that these features were stripped away in order to keep the console's cost low.
