Rumors have been flying for about a week but it’s now official – Amazon has dropped their price on the Nintendo Wii to $200.

For those of you looking forward to New Super Mario Bros. on the Wii, you don’t have long to wait! Nintendo says the game will see a U.S. release on November 15.
The dedication that it must have taken to do this and the level of detail is pretty impressive. I especially like the fact that some of the art extends onto the skin. It gives it an extra dimension.
