Our bingo card
was off by just a couple of days. Nintendo didn't bother to introduce a new color for the Wii system during its E3 press conference
... or anywhere else in North America, for that matter. Japan got its own mini-megaton tonight in the form of a new black Wii system
, which will release in Japan on August 1. In addition, accessories including the Wiimote, Classic Controller, and Classic Controller Pro, will also be released in black to coordinate with the new system and extract money from people who already have Wiis.
In addition, Nintendo announced that a red DSi system will launch in the region on July 11. No announcements have been made for any other region.
