Confirmed: Black Wii consoles arrive in May

Black Wii

Just as some suspected, black Wii consoles are heading for store shelves on May 9 in the US and May 23 in Canada. The confirmation comes from a GameStop employee who received a monthly shipment from Nintendo containing a poster advertising a black Wii console bundled Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, Wii MotionPlus and a Wii mote for $199.99. Although the poster came with explicit instructions not to be displayed until May 4, the excited GameStop employee couldn’t wait to share his discovery with the Interwebs.

When the Wii was first unveiled as the Revolution many fans clamored to get their hands on a sleek black, or other colored, console. Interested in a monolith-like Wii? Let us know in the comments!
