The Wii is already the smallest home console on the market but if a new rumour is to be believed, it will soon be available in an even more petite form factor!

Nintendo World Report is claiming that an internal release schedule from a “major retailer” points to the release of the ‘Wii Mini’ on December 7th in North America.

According to the schedule, the Wii Mini is a “compact” Wii console that comes with a sensor bar, Nunchuk and Wii Remote Plus. No mention is made about the Wii Mini’s price tag which one would expect to be lower than the Wii’s current pricing.

The Wii already received a redesign late last year with the release of the ‘Wii Family Edition’ which lacked compatibility with GameCube games and accessories.
