No more Lego Ninjago Wii and you should stop asking ‘how to hack a Nintendo wii’, as it is planned that Nintendo will stop Wii game console production for the Japanese market announced on Wednesday, but will keep producing it internationally.
The move to abandon the venerable machine, which competes with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3, will allow Nintendo to focus all effort on its successor according to report.
“Our new generation Wii U console is already on the market and allows users to play software originally designed for the Wii,” a company spokesman said. “This is part of the transition of our products to new models.”
Nintendo unveiled the Wii U last year adding a touch-screen controller to the motion-capture console it introduced in 2006 in a bet it could lure players away from smartphones and tablet computers. Remember the first emulator to successfully run commercial Nintendo GameCube and Wii games, and is the only emulator capable of running commercial Wii games. Its name refers to the development codename for the GameCube, so that means no more to that as well for Japanese Wii player?
Nintendo, creator of the Mario and Zelda franchises, has sold more than 100 million Wii units since its 2006 release. The company’s consoles are made by companies in China, Minagawa said without identifying producers according to Bloomberg report.
