Last week, news surfaced of Nintendo’s plans to end production of the Wii in Japan. It doesn’t sound like there are similar plans in the west.
Eurogamer was told by Nintendo that the message was specific to Japan. The company also said, “We have made no specific announcements for Europe regarding Wii production.” That’s the same situation in the states as well.
Nintendo’s statement in full reads:
“Yes, NCL did update their website on 29th August with a small notice to state that Wii hardware production will stop in the near future. This specific message was referring to the Japanese market. No specific time frame has been stated yet. We have made no specific announcements for Europe regarding Wii production.”
