Nintendo has confirmed it will release a cut-price version of its Wii Console - despite being only days away from the UK release of the next-generation Wii U.

It appears the Wii Mini will be restricted to Canada at first, and will lack internet connectivity.

The Wii Mini will cost just $100 Canadian on its release in December - that's around £60 (though we'd expect that price to be higher in the UK).

The system will be compatible with the 1,300+ games already released for the Wii.

The console was leaked on Tuesday by a Canadian retailer.
