Nintendo outs red DSi and Wii, Remote Plus for US

Nintendo this morning brought over the Super Mario Bros. special edition DSi XL and Wii to the US and also set out an American release for the Wii Remote Plus. The two new consoles come in the mascot's distinctive red, with a matching Nunchuck for the Wii, and each come with a copy of a signature Mario game. The DSi XL comes with Mario Kart DS, while the Wii has New Super Mario Bros. Wii packed in along with the usual titles.

Both systems are functionally identical to the regular versions and don't carry a premium over the original versions, costing $180 for a DSi XL and $200 for a Wii. They go on sale November 7 and are considered limited editions that will run out once stocks are dry.

The Wii Remote Plus is as promised and blends the MotionPlus attachment directly into the controller without adding any bulk. Nintendo is making it the default controller for the Wii from now on and is pricing it both as a stand-alone controller, for $40, and as part of a bundle with the new game FlingSmash for $50. It doesn't yet have any other colors beyond white but will ship at the same time as the SMB consoles.
