The excitement from Nintendo might be regarding it new Wii U, but rumours have emerged that the Japanese gamesmaster is planning to launch a mini version of the original Wii next month.

The Wii Mini will, according to Nintendo World Report, come bundled with a sensor bar, Nunchuk and Wii Remote Plus, and will sit horizontally rather than vertically.

Nintendo hasn't confirmed the rumour, but we just wonder if it's trying to take advantage of confused - and potentially short-sighted - parents who have been tasked with buying their children a Wii U.
