First it was the Nintendo Wii Remote and Nunchuk going black, now Nintendo has confirmed the whole console will be getting a black lick of paint in time for Christmas in the UK.

The company has said that it will be launching a Black Wii bundle for Euorpe on Tuesday to be launched in the UK and Republic of Ireland from 6 November and mainland Europe on 20 November.

The bundle will come as a “Limited Edition” bundled with a Wii Remote, Wii MotionPlus and Nunchuk – all in black. Gamers will also get Wii Sports Resort and the original Wii Sports.

Also launching in Europe as part of the black range of accessories will be the new black Classic Controller Pro – an enhanced version of the Classic Controller. 

Additional black Wii Remote controllers, Wii MotionPlus accessories and Nunchuk controllers will also be available to purchase separately across Europe from November 20 onwards. 

Nintendo has not said how limited "limited edition" actually is.
