Update: Nintendo is denying the Nikkei article. A Nintendo spokesperson told Japanese site IT Media, “This isn’t an announcement from our company.” The spokesperson added, “From the next quarter and thereafter as well, production [of the Wii U] is scheduled to continue.”
Original: Wii U consoles will cease at the end of 2016, according to Nikkei.
Apparently Nintendo has already stopped production on select Wii U accessories and the console will join them come the end of the year, as Nintendo instead looks to focus on manufacturing the new Nintendo NX.
The report also suggests that the portable version of the Nintendo NX will be released sometime in 2016, with the home console version due in 2017. Since we've no idea what the Nintendo NX actually is, this is pretty hard to confirm.
It'll likely be a long while before you can't find a Wii U in store, but still, are you sad to see Wii U production stopping?
