Nintendo of America has just issued a statement that they currently have no plans to release the redesigned Wii console in North America.  The statement is as follows:

“Nintendo of America does not currently have any plans to release the Wii bundle that was announced by Nintendo of Europe on Aug. 17. Consumers in the United States can currently purchase a Wii console bundled with the Mario Kart Wii game and Wii Wheel accessory for a suggested retail price of $149.99. The Wii Party game is available separately for a suggested retail price of $39.99.”

With that said I still consider it a possibility for North America to get this redesign eventually.  I just wouldn’t bet on it happening before 2012.
