Nintendo pulls Euro launch of TVii service

Seems Europe will have to make do without Nintendo’s TVii service after all.

In a recent announcement, the games developer declared is has shelved launch plans for a European TVii launch because of complications arising from the continent’s diverse licensing agreements.

“Due to the extremely complex nature of localising multiple television services across a diverse range of countries with varied licensing systems, regrettably we have taken the decision not to launch the Nintendo TVii service within the European region,” reads a statement from the company.

Nintendo went on to say that it did not anticipate the challenges it ended up confronting with the platform, but would continue to seek to develop its regional range of products and services.

Meanwhile, Nintendo of Europe has lately launched a new video-on-demand service, the Nintendo Anime Channel, on Nintendo 3DS.
