It is amazing to see that after so many years these games and console haven’t lost their value or demand. Nintendo said the following while announcing the sales number.

In November last year, we brought back the nostalgic Famicom and NES home consoles in palm-sized versions and shipped the entire quantity of Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer units we initially prepared for each market. We apologize to our consumers and retail partners for the inconvenience caused by product shortages

It is a shame that recent hardware from Nintendo hasn’t been able to capture the level of success these classic machines had and still have. Wii U is officially Nintendo’s worst selling gaming console.

Nintendo Wii U managed to sell on 13.56 million units across the globe. Meanwhile, selling 96 million software units. Compared to PS4’s 400 million, the number is embarrassing.

Wii U production has halted so this marks the end of Wii U. Nintendo is now putting all of its eggs into Switch which is coming out in March.

Nintendo is gunning toward releasing a new platform in March but not before discussing Wii U, probably for one last time. Nintendo Wii U turned out to be a disaster across the globe. It didn’t even manage to do well in Japan, a stronghold of Nintendo hardware.
