Nintendo of Canada’s Communications Manager, Matt Ryan, has revealed that Nintendo sold 35,700 Wii Mini consoles in Canada since launch. Ryan said that the Canadian market has reacted positively to the system which lacks a lot of the functionality that the original Wii console contained. Nintendo Europe announced yesterday that the system will go on sale throughout Europe on March 22nd. UK retail outlets have begun taking pre-orders for the system which costs £80.
“Canadian market has reacted positively to the great value the system has to offer, and we are seeing this reflected in the sales numbers.”
