In the run-up to Christmas -- and with the launch of the Wii U imminent -- Nintendo is introducing a new, lower-cost Wii bundle at U.S. retail to entice more sales as the console's predecessor approaches.

A new bundle will begin arriving in stores today, with broad availability by October 28. Consumers will be able to pick up the new Wii bundle, which includes a black Wii console, bundled with both Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, for just $129.99 in the U.S.

This bundle will also come with a Wii Remote Plus and a Nunchuk controller, and replaces the current black Wii bundle that comes with New Super Mario Bros. Wii. There is no word yet regarding whether this price drop will be echoed outside of the U.S.

The Nintendo Wii originally launched back in 2006 for $249.99, and has since received two other price drops, most recently last year when it officially dropped to $149.99.

The console's successor, the Wii U, launches next month for $300, and will be compatible with some of the original Wii hardware, including the MotionPlus Wii Remotes and the Nunchuk.
