Nintendo today (one day early) announced an official price drop on their Wii system in the US and Japan effective September 27.

The new price point, as speculated, will be $199 and will still contain Wii Sports, a nunchuck, and a Wii Remote and of course the system.

Additionally, Nintendo dated their newest Mario project, New Super Mario Bros Wii for a November 15 release. Missed our hands-on coverage? Check them out here.
