The Nintendo Wii console is on its way to death. After a long lifespan, in short, Nintendo plans to stop repairing the Wii console in Japan. Nintendo stopped selling the consoles in Japan back in 2013 and now they will no longer repair them.
The company sold over 101 million units over its lifespan. The time has come to discontinue support since predecessors are more in demand.
Nintendo made the announcement recently, they will no longer service damaged consoles in Japan and won’t be accepting new units after March 2020.
The company noted it’s getting harder to secure spare parts, as a result, they are closing the repair program.
They may even close the program sooner than announced if spare parts stock runs out. It’s been nearly 15 years since the Wii was initially launched, it will be sadly missed.
