Eurogamer has stated it has received reports from multiple sources that Nintendo will be wrapping up production of the Wii U this Friday, with the company switching its attention to the Switch. The Wii U hasn’t been the success story that Nintendo had hoped it would be, and across its four year lifespan there haven’t been a lot of big hitters in the software department bar games like Mario Kart 7, Splatoon, Mario Maker, and Super Mario 3D World.
Nintendo revealed last month that since launch 13.36 million Wii U’s had been shipped along with 92.35 software units. That confirmed that the Wii U was the worst performing Nintendo console since the company started in home console business. All eyes will be on the Nintendo Switch now as the company aims for both a home and portable market with the console.
Nintendo are yet to confirm the reports.
