Nintendo displays re-hued Wii

The kuro model

Nintendo has rocked the gaming world by unveiling a brand new Wii model.


Nintendo's kuro Wii was unveiled in Japan

But don’t expect more interactive games, new-fangled controllers or holographic storage, because the updated Wii’s innards are identical to that of its predecessor’s – the latest model just has a black body.

Yes, the black Wii – officially called “Colour kuro” – has cropped up on the gaming giant’s Japanese website.


A UK launch hasn't been announced

To ensure that all the peripherals match the console, Nintendo’s also kuro-fied the Remote, Nunchuck and classic controller.

The kuro Wii will be available in Japan during August and will cost ¥25,000 (£158/$259/€182). A UK launch date or price hasn’t been announced. ®
