Nintendo is no longer producing Wii consoles, the company announced on the official Nintendo Japan website for the console.
In a short statement on the Wii's product page, the company notes (as reported by Kotaku) "production ended."
The company had previously announced its planned end-of-production at the start of October, saying only that production would "soon end" across Japan.
The Wii was first launched in 2006, followed by an updated model launched in 2011. In Japan, the console has sold roughly 12.7 million units since its launch, as well as over 100 million units worldwide.
Polygon has reached out to Nintendo to ask if stopping production on the Wii in Japan means it will cease worldwide as well, and will share more details as we have them.
