According to Japanese news site Nikkeli, Nintendo plans on halting production of the Wii U. This has NOT been confirmed by Nintendo and as always take this with a grain of salt. With that said, I can see this possibly being linked to the NX release, though I still find it hard to believe that NX would release this year with no official reveal to date.
Update 1: Nintendo has reportedly denied rumors that they will stop production of the Wii U.
I didn’t expect Nintendo to confirm reports of stopping production. Also until we actually know about the NX, I wouldn’t be too concerned just yet.
This story will be updated as I learn more.
