Nintendo has confirmed that it will no longer be supplying Wii imports to Europe. The news comes after Nintendo Japan said they were discontinuing selling the console that set the world on fire in 2006. Those gamers in Europe that still wish to purchase a Wii can invest in the controversial Wii Mini, or purchase a Wii second-hand. Nintendo of America previously confirmed that they will continue to stock the console during the holiday season.
“Wii imports to Europe have been discontinued. 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.”
