So it turns out the Wii U is still alive. The report from Eurogamer was false, and Nintendo even came out stating there are no plans to stop production. Here is what they had to say:
“There is no change to our continuing [Wii U] production,” a spokesperson told Japanese outlet IT Media. While the representative started out by saying he/she was unaware of the article’s specifics, speculation about Wii U production ending “was not true.”
The representative further added: “Even though the Nintendo Switch is slated to go on sale, [Wii U] production is scheduled to continue.” On top of that, the person explained that there are also upcoming Wii U titles planned for release.
I apologize for the previous article. This kind of report has happened before back in March, where the same thing happened as Nintendo denied the report.
