Nintendo keeps on celebrating Mario's b-day with special edition Wii

Not content with simply releasing a new version of the DSi, Nintendo is offering a new version of the Wii in Japan, which comes bundled with a special edition of the original Super Mario Bros.

In honor of the 25 year-old game, the red console will be released with a slightly modified version of the classic platformer. While the console’s official website is vague on details, it does host several screenshots showing that the traditional question mark adorning item boxes has been replaced with the number 25.

The console goes on sale November 11 for 20,000 yen (about $200) and will include the new Wiimote plus.
