If you’re in the UK and in the market for a Wii, now is the time to act.
Having confirmed that the machine is no longer being supplied to the Japanese market, Nintendo has now revealed that Europe too will not be receiving any further stock of the machine.
Wii imports to Europe have been discontinued,” a Nintendo UK rep told MCV. However, there are still a variety of options for consumers to enjoy Wii games and the Wii gameplay experience.
Wii U, which is Nintendo’s latest home console, is backwards compatible with nearly all existing Wii games and accessories, so you can enjoy a vast library of disc-based and downloadable Wii games and Wii gameplay experiences when you switch to Wii Mode on Wii U.
Wii Mini is also now available across Europe offering Wii gameplay experiences at a great value. Wii Mini puts the focus squarely on games with over 1200 existing disc-based Wii titles to choose from.”
The Wii will live on in the American market for the time being.
