Considering the Switch is going to be replacing the Wii U in many respects, this news shouldn’t be too surprising but it’s sad to hear otherwise. According to Nintendo Wire, the Wii U is now missing from Nintendo’s Website (specifically the front page). While you can still access it from the drop-down menus on the top of Nintendo’s site, it’s exclusion from the front page is sad.
It shows that Nintendo is moving on from the Wii U completely. The system still has more releases coming (like Breath of the Wild) but it’s going to end it’s long four year battle soon. We will report more on Wii U and other Nintendo news as it releases.
