After 25 fun-filled and action-packed years, Super Mario is still speeding into the future! A limited edition black Wii bundle including Mario Kart Wii and all the accessories needed to celebrate Mario's 25th anniversary in speed and style will be available across Europe from 26th November 2010.
As well as a black Wii and Mario Kart Wii, the Mario Kart Wii Pack contains a black Nunchuk, black Wii Remote Plus, black Wii Wheel and Wii Sports. As if that wasn't enough, the bundle will also include Donkey Kong original edition pre-installed on the Wii, in homage to Mario's first ever appearance.
The first Super Mario Kart was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1992 in Japan, seven years after game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and his team put the finishing touches to Mario's first major adventure, Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Since then, there have been 6 versions of the game for Nintendo's consoles, with each game seeing players dive into frenetic racing action on tracks themed from locations in the Super Mario series of games. Mario Kart Wii has sold more than 24 million copies worldwide since its launch.
Mario Kart Wii allows you to race up to 12 friends and family simultaneously using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, ensuring everyone can get behind the wheel and celebrate Super Mario's 25th anniversary with the Mario Kart Wii Pack, launching across Europe from 26th November 2010.
Approximately the size of three stacked DVD cases, the Wii's elegant, compact design makes it a natural addition to your entertainment setup without monopolising it. Thanks to the Wii Remote, you're given more freedom to place the console where it best suits your lifestyle.
Controls: Intuitive control for anyone using the physical motion of the main Wii Remote, which resembles a television remote control. Up to four Wii Remotes can be connected at once using wireless Bluetooth technology. The wireless signal can be detected within 10 metres of the console. Both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk include a three-axis motion sensor. The Wii Remote also includes a speaker, rumble feature and expansion port, and can be used as a pointer within 5 metres of the screen. The Wii Remote has a Power switch, +Control Pad, A Button, B Button, - Button, + Button, Home Button and 1 and 2 Buttons. The Nunchuk includes an analogue control stick and C and Z Buttons.
Media: A single self-loading media bay will play single or double-layered 12-centimetre optical discs for the Wii, as well as 8-centimetre Nintendo GameCube discs.
Communication: The Wii can communicate with the Internet even when the power is turned off. This WiiConnect24 service delivers a new surprise or game update, even if users do not play with Wii. Users can connect wirelessly using IEEE 802.11b/g, or with a Wii LAN adaptor. Wii can also communicate wirelessly with Nintendo DS.
Other features: Four ports for classic Nintendo GameCube controllers. Two slots for Nintendo GameCube Memory Cards. An AV multi-output port for component, composite or S-video.
Virtual Console: It has been more than 20 years since the debut of the NES. Since then, a rich heritage of different gaming platforms and countless games has come and gone. A wide selection of Virtual Console games is available to download from the Internet via the Wii Shop Channel.
