According to the news source Nikkei, Nintendo is ceasing production of the Wii U at the end of the year. Citing poor sales as the reason. It’s also possible that Nintendo is ceasing production to keep cost down for Nintendo for the Nintendo NX.
While I don’t think there is any truth behind this, the sluggish sales of the Wii U have been a problem for a while for Nintendo.
What do you think of this rumor? Does it hold some validity? We will update this article if another source confirms this rumor.
A news article from Itmedia in Japan has confirmed the rumor to be not true. Nintendo has denied the claims by Nikkei.
