New Wii SKU Not Coming To North America
As you might recall, in my original post about the new Wii console that loses the GameCube backwards compatibility I predicted that it would not be coming to America, and apparently I was right.
“Nintendo of America does not currently have any plans to release the Wii bundle that was announced by Nintendo of Europe on Aug. 17,” said a spokesperson to Destructoid. “Consumers in the United States can currently purchase a Wii console bundled with the Mario Kart Wii game and Wii Wheel accessory for a suggested retail price of $149.99. The Wii Party game is available separately for a suggested retail price of $39.99.”
I mean, how much cheaper than $149 could it possibly get? When the Wii U comes out, then we’ll talk.
