Kotaku just got word that Nintendo plans to release a black Wii console (plus controllers and accessories) in Japan—the first color other than white to be offered.

Classic Controllers, Nunchucks, Wiimotes and even the Wiimote gloves will all be available in the new color, which was one of 4 alternative colors proposed when Nintendo launched the console back in 2006. The black Wii will be available on August 1 at the same price (25,000 Yen). Be sure to check out more images over on [Kotaku].
