The special edition red Mario Wii revealed last week will arrive in UK stores on 29th October, Nintendo has confirmed, two weeks before it goes on sale in Japan.
Official Nintendo Magazine reports that the pack will include a red Wii, a red Wii Remote Plus, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Sports and a preloaded copy of the original NES Donkey Kong.
This differs slightly from the Japanese bundle, which comes with Super Mario Bros. rather than Donkey Kong.
Nintendo also confirmed that a limited edition red DSi XL with Mario branding on its shell will launch in the UK on 22nd October. That will come packaged with New Super Mario Bros.
And Mario's birthday celebrations don't end there. On 3rd December you can pick up Super Mario All-Stars: 25th Anniversary Edition for the Wii, which comes with a CD soundtrack and retrospective booklet.
