Nintendo Ceasing Wii Production In Europe

mario_luigi_wii_remote_plus

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.”

    1. only the first gen Wii consoles were backward compatible with Gamecube games, after 2011 they removed that BC

          1. They said that about the Nintendo 64 too. NIntendo has more money than the gaming divisions of Microsoft and Sony combined

        1. Lol at all the fanboys damage controlling. Wake up guys if Wii U continues to do this bad its over for the system and will proly be Nintendo’s last home console. Bottom line if Wii U doesn’t make it out this year alive with NOTABLE sales increase and I’m talking consistent weeks of topping the sales chart then it’s over for Wii U

            1. Not for long. Wii sales are bringing Nintendo down hill. If they stopped supporting Wii U right now and went full 100% support on 3ds they would be doing even better than before. If Wii U continues to bring bad sales in they are going to at some point stop supporting and manufacturing Wii U and truthfully mario 3D world is the only hope for Wii U this holiday, one game alone isn’t going to save it when it’s going up against 3ds, xbone, Wii (im America) and ps4.

    1. Not Stupid…Smart. Do you know how many idiots are ignorant of the Wii U? Not just people but store companies too! This is partly Nintendo’s fault for not marketing well but It still doesn’t defeat the fact that this is smart and needed to happen for marketing.

      1. No. He’s right. Stupid.

        And they are stupid for producing and selling the Wii Mini. I honestly don’t think Nintendo could TRY to make the WiiU fail any harder.

        1. Well.. i can understand you are angry but that doesn’t mean it’s stupid… in all sense this is a smart and typical company move. :)

          1. Wow the damage controlling is serious. How’s that a smart move ? Its going to NEGATIVELY affect wii U sales!!!

            1. just dont try….. they lack sense. so much damage control, the nintendo fanboys should just be renamed to damgecondrones.

              1. I just said above why they did it…and if anything you trolls are the ones lacking sense. You are just completely closed mined to fans just because you passed your judgment that they are “damage controlling” or just “fanboys”.

                1. Speaking truth isn’t trolling man. Continuing Wii sales here is going to affect the Wii U In a bad way. Now parents will be buying a cheap $70-$100 Wii with tons of games instead of buying a $300 Wii U with no games to buy and i mean exclusive 1st party.

                  1. *parent will buy a cheap 70-100 wii with tons of games*

                    How is nintendo losing here? The wii is even cheaper to manufacture now, they are actually making a profit off it, not to mention clueless consumers will buy it this year, and then it becomes obsolete by the next. In which the Wii will most definitely be discontinued by then, and support for it will be long gone.

  1. You guys, the Wii isn’t dead yet in Europe. Wii Mini is a Wii console. Just the original and family edition are dead.

  2. Probably the best move on Nintendo’s part. Most people won’t buy Wii U’s if there’s still the option of buying a Wii. The solution? Don’t give them the option…

      1. Thanks for the reply. I was just wondering cause I haven’t seen him on here for awhile.

      2. you give me the rights to ban people and you’ll have yourself a troll-free community given i visit your site multiple times a day…

        1. I don’t think it’s fair that you ban people just because they don’t agree with the fanboys here and give a separate opinion related to Nintendo. Its one thing if they keep posting shit like, and im talking all the time like that’s all they say “Nintendo doomed haha, Wii U doomed,,” but if they post dislike towards Nintendo in a civil manner I don’t see the problem then

          1. I see you as a troll…and not someone who just simply states their opinion. Though I’ve barley commented before I’ve seen your annoying posts before and they weren’t as calm or as civil as you say. But the people that sickr banned are the ones that just brought utter discomfort and even rage to users on this site. I understand people have the right to opinion but trolling is a whole ‘nother story.

            1. Lol yea you see me as a troll because I don’t fanboy on Wii U like all the other people here. You just don’t know what trolling is, you only find my post annoying because it goes against Wii U and against what you like. Biased fanboy is biased.

              1. Then go to a different site that likes criticism towards Nintendo…and i already said that im fine with any opinion but you are just a troll that fails to admit it.

        1. Black Friday is insane here where I live too. I went to Target just one time a few years ago on Black Friday, and I swore I never would again. Never have I seen more people in a store at one time than that day. It was a MADHOUSE!

  3. WHAT?! NINTENDO!!! I have a hobby going to the store, and buying moar Wii’s. HOW AM I SUPPOSED CONTINUE MY HOBBY!!! OF GOING TO THE STORE!!!!!!!!!!! AND BUYYYING MOOOARR WEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZ???!?!?!?!?! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!

            1. In the end, Ice is such a nice guy.

              GRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              *stands up and looks with anger*

              WHERE IN THE WORLD DUMBTENDO PUT IWATA DIAPERS????? IWATA USES DIAPERS……………… MOARRRR… STUPID REGGIE!!!!!!!!!!! FIRE THAT GUY, GO BACK PIZZZZZA HUTTTTTTT….

              *look at us, and points the finger at us*

              NNNNNNUTSSSSSS, YOU DISCOVERED MY ALT…. HAHAHAHAHAAAHHHGRGH!!!

              XD

      1. I’m not iceazmea. Though there’s no real way for me to prove that. I would hope that you gave me the benefit of the doubt. I have a Wii U. I was just expressing my concern or lack there of; for wii production. Seeing as no new awesome games will be coming out for it. I’m not a troll.

        1. Relax, man. I just came up with that assumption since you wrote in such a similar way to Ice. That’s all.

          Although he’s annoying sometimes, we all agree that he’s a cool guy and gives some sense of humor to the comments.

          Oh, in time: he also loves Nintendo a lot – he even has a Wii U as well. But it seems that he prefers to complain about it rather playing it.

          1. ???…quiet!!! both of you!!! your just another alt i created…. however FIRE THAT PIZZA HUT LOVIN BASTARD!!! …he shouldnt work for nintendo…hahahahahaha you little nintensheep are waisting your time with the wiiu!!! that dust collector set my house on fire! i’m homeless thanks to it having no games………………..i hope that dust collecting toaster fails

            wiidustforyou….wiitards!!!!!!! hahahahaha…

            lmfao!!! let’s just stop before we get banned xD

            1. I got nervous about getting banned just by reading your comments. This place… It’s interesting. That’s probably why I come around so often. It would be strange though. If all of these comments were coming from the same person. O_O

  4. Well? The Nintendo wii production lines in usa will most likely stop very soon, even though it doesn’t look that way!
    Just like how the Stores had quit selling brand new nintendo dsi’s lol

    1. Nah, he comes and goes very often. He also contributes a lot to the site and sends tips to sickr so I doubt hes banned.

  5. HAHAHAA, another one on the list, reggie is so fucking dumb. fire him!! hes the worst noa president in history. facts, that tob o lard needs to go, noe gets it. that guy needs more reconition, oh wait nintengeeks dont like him because he doesnt have a shitty catch phrase but instead does good at his job.

    “my body is ready for shitty games and decisions”

    1. Lol welcome back iceazeama can’t have a funny thread without you in here. Too bad the other funny guys got banned (I think)

      1. just wait till this blog turns into fanboy city, where fanboys can jump up and down with mario, mommies bottle with their little baggy diapers, and no more normal thinking people who dont mindlessly follow their dictator. poor things. sickr is going to have to baby sit quite often.

        it would be a perfect place to bring my niece, she can crawl around and play with the fanboys!!! what a nice play date!! then i wont have to watch her.

        1. The whole “kiddy” argument is old please change the channel and stop re-running your shows…They are no longer entertaining.

        2. Lmao really. These fanboys here are really sad and don’t think openly about what the Wii U is becoming. They think 3D world ONE GAME is going to shift Wii U sales this holiday and that’s where the problem lies.

          1. Wasn’t 3D land pretty much on its own against every thing and blew 3DS sales to the sky mario kart was there too. Mario kart is in spring sadly. We might get aleast half the effect that happen to 3DS during holidays. Sony and microsoft have nothing for the holidays besides their new plastic. Launch sells will be up while holiday sells will be lower. People go after deals during the holidays, if doesn’t offer a cheap deal most people won’t buy them this much this holiday. Next holiday they will have more deals and more sells. Even the wii u didn’t have that many deals last year during black friday. Nintendo needs to put advertisments everywhere this holiday, the wii u and its games. They need to work out deals for stores so they can sell wii u s on black friday

  6. The NA territory is always last it these days it seems, just like most things overall…
