In Japan, Nintendo are releasing a Mario Red Wii to celebrate their mascot character’s 25th anniversary. In addition to a Wii Remote Plus and all the other regular Wii hardware pack-ins, the Mario Red Wii bundle also comes with a special 25th anniversary version of Super Mario Bros. installed on the system.

 

The same bundle has now been confirmed for Europe, but with a few changes. The European bundle will include everything the Japanese bundle does, but will also come with a Wii Sports disc and the original edition of Donkey Kong pre-installed on the Wii, in homage to Mario’s first appearance.
