Nintendo has confirmed rumors New Super Mario Bros. Wii is to be released on 15th November.

Nintendo tied news of the release with that of the Wii’s price drop, which will, as of Sunday, be available for $199.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii caused a massive stir at this year’s E3. Gamers and journalists got very excited at the prospect of what’s pretty much looking like an old-skool Mario, but with a rather fun-looking multiplayer slant (and of course a graphics update).
