The Wii Mini, a much smaller version of the once-popular console with lots of the functionality stripped out, will receive a release outside of Canada next month.

The hardware will launch in the UK on March 22 in the same matte black with a red border style seen last year in Canada. A red Wii Remote Plus and red Nunchuk are also supplied.

Notably, the console cannot connect to the internet, and therefore does not support online play for any games that have online features. The console also is not compatible with Nintendo GameCube discs or accessories.

A price hasn't yet been provided, and Nintendo hasn't said whether the console will also receive a launch in the U.S. Gamasutra has contacted the publisher for confirmation.

The Wii Mini originally launched in Canada at the end of 2012, with Nintendo saying that this cut-down model will be "great value for first-time Wii owners who just want to jump in."
