You read that right, America. Nintendo has no plans of an overseas release for the sleek black Wii that's rolling out in Japan next month. If you really want one, importing's the only way to go at this time. That, or modding your old Wii.
This was confirmed by a Nintendo rep to GameDaily recently. According to the rep, Nintendo has "no plans to have other colors of Wii in the U.S." Of course, Nintendo already has a reputation for releasing a whole rainbow of colors for its consoles, so it could still only be a matter of time until we see these Wiis outside Japan.
