With the reveal of Nintendo Switch fans are expecting that Nintendo will soon stop its support for Nintendo Wii U. Well, Nintendo has officially announced that production of Nintendo Wii U will end soon.
The announcement comes from the Nintendo’s official Japanese site, where the company announced that Production is scheduled to end soon.
It is important to note that this announcement was only made on the Japanese website, so it is still unknown that how this would impact the Nintendo Wii U in other regions.
While the production on Nintendo Wii U will end soon, but Nintendo’s other handheld console Nintendo 3DS is still going strong and the company has announced that they don’t have any plans to discontinue Nintendo 3DS.
Thanks to our software, the 3DS hardware is still growing. So that business still has momentum. And certainly rather than being cannibalized by the Switch, we think the 3DS can continue in its own form.
This comes as no surprise since Pokemon Sun And Moon, that will be releasing for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, is the most pre-ordered game for Nintendo 3DS in the history of the console.
Nintendo’s next console will be Nintendo Switch, which will launch in March 2017, but so specific release date or price has been announced by Nintendo. More details about the console will be revealed on Nintendo Switch Presentation in January.
However, Nintendo has announced that Nintendo Switch will playable in February 2017 at Tokaigi Japan Game Party. The event will be held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, near Tokyo, from February 11 to February 12.
