Nintendo to stop Wii U production

It’s time to say goodbye to Wii U according to recent news from gamesindustry.biz. It is stated that Nikkei has information on Nintendo closing the production by the end of this year. It seems that the next console (the NX) is on its way.

Nintendo to stop Wii U production

Some of the firms in the supply chain have already shut down production of their parts. The existing stockpile is said to be exhausted before the end of the year, but it is also said that despite this closure, Nintendo intends to continue developing Wii U software.

On a more personal note, I like the Wii U a lot, but it did absolutely nothing for Nintendo as a company. This move makes total sense

Dr. Serkan Toto, Kantan Games analyst

The story of Wii U dates back to November of 2012, Since its launch, Wii U has sold 12.60 million systems worldwide. Wii U is one the lowest selling consoles in the history of Nintendo, so this step seems quite logical indeed. Perhaps next product, which is said to be quite powerful, will live up to the success of some of Nintendo’s consoles.
