‘No plans’ to offer new Wii model in US

That new Wii model that’s due out in Europe this holiday season? It won’t be crossing the seas.

Chatting at Gamescom, Nintendo’s confirmed it has no intentions for a US release of the redesigned system; the company “does not currently have any plans” for a US release, a spokesperson told Kotaku at the event.

The now-horizontal system was announced yesterday, with a few features not making the cut. Namely, GameCube games and accessories won’t be supported.
