Two new Wii bundles are in the works- A black Wii packed with New Super Mario Bros. and a Super Mario Galaxy Soundtrack is set to launch in the US on October 23rd, and a blue Wii with the new Mario and Sonic at London 2012 Olympic Games ready to emerge in the EU with the game’s release November 18th.
While these bundles may seem exciting, being brand new smaller models, their form factor comes at a lofty cost indeed: any and all gamecube support has been removed from the system. The four controller ports and memory card slots have been stripped from this new model to afford its’ smaller size, and these new models are unable to read the older system’s mini-discs.

We can probably assume everyone will see a similar window, but we will wait and see if Nintendo says anything tomorrow at the Media Summit.
