Nintendo denies Wii U's production death, again

Nintendo denies Wii U's production death, again

With Nintendo's announcement of the new gaming console, Switch, a better more relevant version of Nintendo's Wii U, the end of Wii U was inevitable.

Yesterday reports spread all over the Internet that Nintendo will cease production of the Wii U this week.

Nintendo did, however, announce the following month that they would be reducing the amount of Wii U systems manufactured and shipped. Now, a statement made to IT Media says production isn't ending this week.

The Wii U hasn't been a huge success for Nintendo, but games are still on the way for the console.

Although notable games like "Super Mario 3D World", "Super Mario Kart 8", "Splatoon", "Bayonetta 2", and "Super Mario Maker" were made available for Nintendo's Wii U. It didn't help increase the sales of the gaming console.

As Kotaku points out, Nintendo tends to deny rumors that eventually turn out to be true, which might be the case here. While no title was named, this could be a reference to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will be released in 2017 on both the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch. This isn't the first time Nintendo had to dismiss such a claim, as it previously denied reports stating that it would end Wii U production in March of this year. "From the next quarter and thereafter as well, production [of the Wii U] is scheduled to continue".
