Wii Production Set to Continue Outside of Japan

Posted on October 23, 2013 AT 06:21am

Earlier this week we reported that Nintendo of Japan has ceased production of the Nintendo Wii, but that hasn’t signaled an end for the console in other territories.

“The announcement that the Wii console has been discontinued is specific to Japan,” a Nintendo representative told GameSpot. “There is no change in the status of Wii in the United States, and it is available for purchase this holiday season.”

The console released in North America back in November 2006 and as of July 2013 had sold over 100 million units worldwide.
