Throughout the Wii’s lifecycle, we saw various rip-offs of the console, many of which originated from China. We’ve moved on to Wii U now, but copycats continue to surface – like the “G20”.
Chinese online retail giant Alibaba and electronics company Xiao Bawang are teaming up to produce the new console. The system itself isn’t a complete Wii rip-off, but it does make use of a controller that possesses some blatant Wii Remote similarities.

Free DLC on Wii/DS won’t be accessible after Wi-Fi Connection shutdown
There are a number of Wii and DS games that offer free downloadable content. For instance, players can download a bunch of additional puzzles for Picross 3D and Professor Layton at no extra costs.
If this DLC interests you, you’ll need to grab it before the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection closes on May 20. While paid DLC will still be accessible, free content will be good for good.
A Nintendo representative told NintendoWorldReport:
“The bonus Layton puzzles and such will no longer be available. So you need to get them before the service shuts down. Paid stuff will still be available, though (Wii Shop Channel, etc.).”
