According to a report from Eurogamer, the Wii U line will end production this week. We love the Wii U and think it is a great system but it has struggled since launch, and Nintendo is now looking to focus its efforts on the Nintendo Switch which is launching in March.

 

For the 12 months ending 31st March 2017, Nintendo forecasted it would ship just 800k Wii U units. 560k of those had already been shifted as of 30th September, suggesting a further 240k will have been produced since then, as of this Friday, to round out the console for good.

The last year or so has seen Nintendo, behind the scenes at least, shift its focus to the future. The company’s upcoming Nintendo Switch console is still four months away from launch.

We invite our readers to share their favorite Wii U games with us and let us know what you liked them.
