The time has finally come to say goodbye to the beloved Nintendo Wii. Nintendo Japan announced on its website that technical support for the Wii will end on March 31, 2020.

Spanning the course of over 13 years, the Nintendo Wii was originally launched on December 2, 2006. The Nintendo Wii has sold over 101 million units since it’s launch and is Nintendo’s third best selling console. The Wii has a whopping 1540 games with its last game being Just Dance 2020 which released last November. (Source)

Due to issues obtaining parts to repair Wii units, Nintendo Japan has decided to stop offering support starting March 31, 2020. This means repair and technical support will no longer be available for the Wii console.
