The Wii U is a console that is celebrating it’s final major year of support from Nintendo and the system will be ending production starting the end of this week (as of this writing).
Nintendo will end Wii U production this Friday, multiple sources have confirmed to Eurogamer. At the last official count, as of 30th September, Nintendo had shipped 13.36m Wii U consoles. The console’s final tally will likely now be only slightly more. Nintendo’s Japanese production line will shut down for the last time this week after the final deadline for orders passed yesterday, Eurogamer understands. Only a small number of further orders were placed.
This is a shame to hear but Nintendo’s future looks promising with the Switch, so we will see how things play out for Nintendo as the months pass.
