It's just a router. Nothing special. It takes your internet by ethernet and makes a wireless signal that your laptop or—gasp—your Wii can connect to from anywhere in your house. That Wii connection made Nintendo want to get in on the router game and manufacture a cute, white, plastic little WiFi machine of its own. Does it do anything special for your Wii? Don't think so. Will it outsell every wireless router ever? Well, if you've got stock in NetGear, it might be time to sell.

It's only going to be available in Japan right now, for 5,800 Yen or about $54, and is set to be released on September 18.

Does fashion beat function for you? Do you want one? Or is your regular router working just fine for ya?
