The Wii Mini has been available in several territories for many months now. It made its debut in Canada last December, and came to Europe in March.
Today, Nintendo announced plans to distribute Wii Mini in the US as well. The system is due out around the middle of November. Pricing is set at $99.99.

Regular Wii units discontinued in Europe, but Wii Mini sticking around

As it turns out, the Wii’s discontinuation isn’t specific to Japan. It’s also going out of production in Europe, with one catch.
Going forward, it’ll be much tougher to find a regular Wii system in European regions. Nintendo, however, says the Wii Mini isn’t leaving just yet.
A representative told MCV:
“Wii imports to Europe have been discontinued. However, there are still a variety of options for consumers to enjoy Wii games and the Wii gameplay experience. Wii U, which is Nintendo’s latest home console, is backwards compatible with nearly all existing Wii games and accessories, so you can enjoy a vast library of disc-based and downloadable Wii games and Wii gameplay experiences when you switch to Wii Mode on Wii U. Wii Mini is also now available across Europe offering Wii gameplay experiences at a great value. Wii Mini puts the focus squarely on games with over 1200 existing disc-based Wii titles to choose from.”
