UK retailers have begun listing the Wii Mini price, with £80 looking set to be the standard.
Amazon and GAME are offering the console for £79.99, while ShopTo currently has it listed for £84.85.
Yesterday Nintendo announced a Wii Mini release date of March 22 in the UK.
The flat resting system features a manual release top-loading disc tray, comes in matte black with a red border, and is packaged with the Wii sensor bar and a red MotionPlus controller and Nunchuk.
The console has no internet connectivity options or GameCube support, but is compatible with 1,200 disc-based Wii games and supports "most" Wii accessories.
