No official price given - it will go on sale on Nov 18th (EU), same date as the game.

It's obviously the new, cheaper, no-GC, no-stand Wii.

I have a white one and want to transfer all to my red one... but this is really eye-catching, IMO!

It only took them 5-6 years to release all the colors, eh?

No, wait, green and silver are still missing...

I was expecting a darker Colored blue, not the Blue Wii Remote Blue. Not a big fan of the shade.

Does it come with a blue nunchuck? I hate that we can only get white or black.

Horrible box. It's so vacant, the baby blue looks like it was plucked from 1999, and the grey Wii logo blends in a really hideous way. It's clearly very quickly thrown together by some intern.

I love how "SEGA" is on the box without an eye-catching Nintendo logo, though. That's just awesome.

A darker blue would have been nicer. It's also so strange to see Sonic on the box of a Nintendo console.

Well, the first Mario & Sonic was such a low budget ugly cash cow, I wonder if they changed the formula. If not, this has to be the worst pack-in game ever.

Would have bought a Wii at launch in this colour. I settled for black in the end.

Always annoys me having to wait for console colours. Gonna be hell buying a bog-standard black Vita around launch knowing stuff like White and Sky Blue ones will roll out down the line :/
