The discontinuation of Wii console manufacturing in Japan will not affect availability in the United States, a Nintendo of America representative told GameSpot.
"The announcement that the Wii console has been discontinued is specific to Japan," the spokesperson 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 Wii launched in North America on November 2006, followed by a Japan release a month later. More than 100 million units have been sold worldwide since its launch, shifting approximately 12.7 million units in Japan. The Wii Mini, a scaled-down version of the Wii console, was released across Canada, U.K. and Europe in 2012.
