Nintendo Is No Longer Making Wii U Games

As the title suggests, Nintendo is not going to be making any more Wii U games after The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With the Switch just around the corner, it seems Nintendo are hanging up the Wii U in favour or focusing more on this new console,

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed this:

“From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of the legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” he told Polygon. “We really are at the end of life for Wii U. From our standpoint, sunsetting is quite some time into the future. The ongoing activity from an online standpoint on [Mario] Kart and Splatoon is significant. We’re going to continue to support that,” explained Fils-Aime.

Wii U launched backed in November 2012 and sold only 13.36 million units as of September 2016.

Nintendo will be hoping for more success with the Nintendo Switch, which launches worldwide on March 3.
