Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has more or less confirmed that Wii owners outside Japan will also get to experience the newly-launched Wii video streaming service.
"Wii-no-Ma service is available only in Japan at the start, but the overseas deployment is under planning in the future," said Iwata. He also added that the service's original Japanese programming may be included in the service's international versions:
As Japanese videogames, anime or manga are very favoured all over the world, we also anticipate a great possibility of same spread for video programmes.
The Wii-no-Ma video streaming service is Nintendo's way of bringing even more people -- especially those who don't even want to play games on a Wii -- into the Wii fold.
