Nintendo Relaunching the Wii, Slimmed Down

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – The Nintendo Wii just got even more compact. Today Nintendo announced an all new Wii bundle for Europe. Besides the same gaming platform, the new bundle will come with Will Party and Wii Sports.

Perhaps you’re wondering about the actual shape change to the console itself. Well, according to the release by Nintendo, the console “introduces a streamlined Wii console with a slightly altered configuration, which is designed to sit horizontally, rather than vertically.” The new Wii will be available in October.

The original Wii was released in late 2006. Meanwhile, Nintendo is already prepping the Wii’s successor. Named the Wii U, the console was demonstrated at this year’s E3 gaming conference. One of its most interesting features includes its controller, which features touchscreen technology. Wii U is expected to hit the market sometime next year.
