Denied, North America.

So that totally cool black Wii that's set to release on August 1 in Japan? You know, the one bundled with Monster Hunter 3 Tri and a Classic Controller Pro? Yeah, it looks like it (officially) won't be coming Stateside any time soon.

Speaking to GameDaily, a Nintendo America rep confirmed that they have "no plans to have other colors of Wii in the U.S." Awww.

We'll see how long this one lasts. It's not like Nintendo haven't denied obvious things before, like both DS remodels. And really, with a money-making prospect like this, they'd be crazy not to. Then again, we do have to remember who we're dealing with: a company that marches to the beat of its own Kongas.
