Nintendo has apologized for the absence of Nintendo TVii in Europe. Originally planned to launch last year in the continent, the Wii U application allows users to engage with TV shows and movies via the Wii U GamePad. The 6.2-inch touch-screen controller can also be used to search for programming from subscription services. Nintendo TVii has been available in North America and Japan since December 2012.
“We would like to apologise that we were unable to bring the Nintendo TVii service to Europe in 2013 as originally planned,” Nintendo said.
“Please continue to keep an eye out for further announcements regarding this service in the near future.”
