Jon Bringus, a dedicated fan of the Nintendo Wii, has recently achieved a remarkable feat by creating what could be the world’s largest fully functional Wii console. Released in 2006, the Wii continues to be celebrated as one of Nintendo’s most revolutionary developments, thanks to its unique and accessible controls, extensive software library, and compact design. The console holds a special place in the hearts of gamers who grew up with it, newcomers discovering its games for the first time, and modders who continue to explore its capabilities. One such modder, YouTuber Joe Bringus, decided to take the concept of modding to a whole new level.
In his latest YouTube video, Bringus showcases his impressive creation, which he aptly named the “Wii XL.” Compared to the original Wii, the Wii XL is a whopping 2.3 times larger in size and boasts a 12-fold increase in volume. Despite its colossal proportions, Bringus managed to maintain the functionality of the original Wii console within the Wii XL. Users can still play Wii and GameCube games, including the beloved Wii Sports, as well as utilize memory and SD cards. The modded console is even compatible with USB controllers and features a built-in HDMI adapter for enhanced video output.
