Report: Nintendo to Cease Wii U Productions November 4


nintendo wii u 07-10-16-1

With Nintendo finally revealing their Nintendo Switch console, many have speculated when the company would put the ax to their floundering Wii U console.

According to a new report (via Eurogamer), it seems like the tablet-focused console is getting the final nail in the coffin sooner than expected – this Friday to be precise.

“Multiple sources” have confirmed that the company will cease production of the Wii U on November 4th. This coincides with their sources noting that the final deadline for orders on the console was yesterday.

As of September of this year, Nintendo has shipped over 13 million Wii U consoles worldwide, in comparison to the 44 million for PlayStation 4 and 23 million for Xbox One.

    Were they still making them? I thought they had enough inventory and production ceased years ago.

  • OldPalpy

    Rest in piss.

  • Spooky Jack

    Died as it lived
    With no games

  • November 2012-2016.

    That is really short.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    Another Nintendo console which never got a Metroid game. Damn it

  • Master Bating

    No Zelda, no Metroid, an awful Star Fox and censored games up the ass.

    WiiU, at least it had Splatoon, Dong Freeze and piracy.

  • Smug
  • Uncle Ocelot

    I’m surprised it hasn’t already happened.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    He really doesn’t help himself, does he?

  • Donwel
  • Mr0303

    Remember, remember the 4th of November, the Wii U’s dying spot,
    I see no reason why the Wii U treason should ever be forgot.

  • it actually had some of my favorites of the last gen on it :/

  • gwadahunter2222

    Switch stole the Zelda

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I may as well check out the piracy scene since my Wii U has been laying around for a while, I think it’s possible on current firmware too (doesn’t look like Nintendo cares about fixing that exploit).

  • NukeA6

    It had at least the Wind Waker remaster.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I don’t know if I’d count 2 remasters and Hyrule Warriors as quite the same thing. Hyrule Warriors is a fun game though, good cheesecake too.

  • KissDisqus

    Honestly it had the best exclusives this gen.

    Bayonetta 2
    Xenoblade Chronicles X
    Tokyo Mirage
    Pikmin 3
    Kibry and the Rainbow Curse
    Captain Toad
    Yoshi’s Woolly World
    Mario Kart 8
    The Wonderful 101
    Splatoon

    Sucks it got gimped on the multiplatform titles by publishers/devs.

    Still PC+Wii U was the way to go if you wanted the best exclusives and the multiplats that the Wii U never got.

  • AR7777

    Before the WiiU was announced I wanted the next Nintendo console to be good (in spite of great sales I think Wii was a bad system).
    Then they announced WiiU and the first thought I had was the name was really bad. They should have abandoned the Wii name right away.
    When I first saw the announcement video I thought it was better system than the Wii, I remember one guy throwing shurikens through the tablet control and it looked cool.
    Then finally it was released, it had a really small hard drive, it had that shitty account system tied to the console and the tablet gimmick made the system expensive, also I read you could use only one tablet per system. I think ZombiU was the only game that looked like it used the tablet screen in a funny way. In the end the pro controller should have been the real controller and the tablet should have been optional.
    All those factors prevented me from buying a WiiU at launch, but I remember ZombieU looked interesting.
    Then the Nintendo games were a new suprr mario that looked just like the one on the wii and nds even with the grab three coi ns system, a new mario kart but I didn’t even played mario kart on Wii that much, I don’t like smash so no smash and 3dworld that looked really cool, the toad game looked to expensive in relation to what it was. Then as third party exclusives I didn’t like bayonetta on ps3 so B2 was not interesting to me and xenoblade looked really cool.
    The WiiU kept being expensive and most multiplat games didn’t make it to the system, it was pretty clear the system was dead when xbone announced it had more sales even after it was released a year later.
    Then they announced they were working on NX, so I found no reason to buy an expensive dead system with bad account system for 3dw and xenoblade.
    More than a year later WiiU ceases production and the situation is the same as 2 or 3 years ago, no reason to buy WiiU

  • AR7777

    When the switch sells like shit they will rush to make a real portable system and wish they had made a real home console

  • NukeA6

    Still more than Metroid which is only lucky to get a Fisher-Price FPS for the 3DS.

  • orbo

    Would it have been better if it got other m or fed force? :/

  • Smug

    >Tokyo Mirage Session as best exclusive
    It was still an abortion even before NoA censored it
    Replace it with Project Zero instead even though it was also censored.

  • Zanard Bell

    Well, there’s your problem. Exclusives.

  • Captain Vidya

    Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles sequel that takes advantage of the Wii U pad NEVER EVER.

    ;-;

  • doog

    So them stating multiple times that the switch (nx) wouldn’t be a replacement for the wiiu was sort of a lie then right?

    I’m doubting the switch will be a substantial upgrade in hardware over the wiiu if your just planning to use it like a home console. Going to be a hard sell.

  • Cael
  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    At least it had Bayo 2~.

  • Donwel

    >sort of
    Of course it was a lie. Remember they also said the DS wasn’t going to be a replacement for the GameBoy line and look what happened there.
    I think I also remember them saying that the Wii would continue to be supported post WiiU release and they dropped it like a hot turd the second WiiU went up for sale. Just Nintendos MO tbh m8.

  • RockstarRepublic

    Nintendo needs to go the way of Sega. Just make games.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    rip in pieces wii u
    and nothing of value was lost

  • Dom The Elegy

    Another? It’s the first home console to never get a Metroid game. And no exclusive Zelda title. Even the Wii had Skyward Sword. It was complete shit but at least it was there.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    best exclusives are on the ps4 though.

  • heroyaldog

    exclusives on ps4?….there’s like two

  • Grayares Fakcot

    atelier sophie. odin sphere. disgaea 5. persona 5.

  • At least it had The Wonderful 101 and Fast Racing Neo.

  • The N64 had no Metroid right?

    Don’t forget Link’s Crossbow Challenge.

  • Kakaku

    Not surprised. Haven’t seen a new Wii U release since Pokken Tournament. Pretty much figured Nintendo was trying to kill it at that point. Well the good news is that the price of the Wii U is gonna drop now that its “obsolete”. Gives more people the chance to try out the exclusives without having to paid a huge price.

  • Smug

    Only one title you listed is an actual PS4 exclusive

  • And nothing of value was lost.

  • Travis Touchdown

    It’s replacing both 3DS and Wii U, they are just phasing Wii U out first.

    And that’s fine. Wii U was still the best home console this generation, with countless classic games.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Star Fox Zero, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Color Splash, just to name a few.

  • Lucky

    When people say “exclusive” they usually mean ONLY on the console. As in, console exclusive, generation exclusive don’t count.

    So, like Smug said, only Disgaea 5 counts dude.

  • buddyluv324

    Yep. When the Wi iU does lower in price, people will have no more excuses to bitch about Bayonetta 2 being exclusive anymore.

  • Sony Playstation 3 – Released in November 2006, Still in production
    Nintendo Wii U – Released in 2012, production will be ceased in November 2016

    PS3 – 10 year life
    Wii U – 4 year life

    Why would anybody still go with Nintendo home consoles?

    Oh well enjoy your switch short lifespan.

  • It already was a toilet bowl of piss LMAO.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Sega?
    Make games?

    They don’t have shit besides Yakuza, which will probably make the jump to Switch anyway.

  • Travis Touchdown

    It’s not really a replacement because it’s not a traditional console.

  • Kakaku

    Sorry I thought Pokken Tournament was this year, not last. Little mistake of mine.

    Wait no it was this year. At least in the states.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Well, you’re right about it replacing both…

  • PenguinPlayer

    So I guess I should rush to get all the games I want before they disappear from the face of the Earth?

    What a shame Bayonetta 2 and Wonderful 101 had to be released in such a console, they are definitely top tier fun, hopefully they find new life in the Switch or something to carry their legacy.

    Hey, wait a second, are they ending production of this console before Breath of the Wild is even out? I just noticed that, what the hell Nintendo?

  • Smug

    >what is Stella Glow and Puyo Puyo
    pretty disappointing you dont even know the publisher’s catalog despite your Nintendo faggotery

  • Uncle Ocelot

    If Bayonetta 3 is on the Switch, you can bet on the first two being there too. If not, emulation.

  • Ankoku Tou

    Guess I’ll post this
    http://imgur.com/a/DbsFP
    Wii U:
    7 shovelware, 1 game that’s already released on other systems, MonHun/Sniper/Shantae isn’t an exclusive.

    PS3:
    It answers itself.

    And mind you, the WiiU is supposed to be rivalling the PS4 and XBone, and not something from a previous generation.

  • Smug

    “It’s replacing both 3DS and Wii U”
    “It’s not really a replacement”
    Make up your mind

  • KissDisqus

    I don’t remember any game really utilizing the wii u pad much besides nintendoland.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Take GBA. New software was released for it until 2008.

    It’s the same deal with 3DS and Wii U.

  • Ankoku Tou

    Schrödinger’s game console.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    He still won’t let go of the 90s.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    you can’t play them on nintendo. nor pc. it’s ps exclusive.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    >game is ps4/vita
    HAHA VITA HAS NO GAMES
    >game is ps4/ps3
    HAHA PS3 HAS NO GAMES
    >game is ps4/pc
    HAHA PS4 HAS NO GAMES

  • Smug

    Western shovelware isnt anything to be proud of

  • gwadahunter2222

    The same way the Dolphin (GameCube) won’t replace the N64, the revolution (Wii) won’t replace the GameCube, the Wii U won’t replace the Wii.

    Nintendo is hammering the Switch is a home console to avoid to kill the wrong console (3DS) first.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    You said they were exclusive when they aren’t. I don’t know what got rammed up your anus, dude.

  • Travis Touchdown

    That’s hilarious coming from a niche gamer reader.

    How well does Gal Gun play, again?

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I actually didn’t know that. How much of it was good software though?

  • Grayares Fakcot

    they technically are.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    The only instance of Yakuza coming out on a non PlayStation system was the HD Collection on Wii U which tanked, it’s possible but don’t count on it.

  • Smug

    https://puu.sh/s31tj/f296b567b9.png

    This is like saying PSP is alive because of otome shit

  • Uncle Ocelot

    How? They literally cannot be exclusive if they are on other systems.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I dunno man, that looks like a GOAT to me.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    by that definition, zero ps3 games are exclusive because they are on PSNow.

  • Ankoku Tou

    Actually only until 2007
    Back to Stone
    Uno 52
    4 in 1 GT
    Agent Hugo
    Artic Tale
    Avatar: The Last Airbender
    Barbie as the Island Princess
    The Bee Game
    Bratz: The Movie
    Crash of the Titans
    Darke & Josh
    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
    The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night
    Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots
    Spiderman 3
    TMNT
    Uno Free Fall

    Most of it are either shovelware or movie tie in, don’t forget to give a moment of silence to that shitty Spyro game.

  • Smug

    It’s an actual good game with PC port being the best version.

    Did that title triggered you and your liberal friend Joshua again?

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Still more retail releases than the Wii U in 2016.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    >Streaming
    I don’t think that’s quite the same thing.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    how are they not? you pay for license to play games either way.
    anyways i aint gonna reply anymore since im tired of the no games meme. ive had enough of it since ps3

  • gwadahunter2222

    Japanese dev never asked for the PS4, it was the western dev mostly. The Japanese dev lately found how to code on PS3 due to “the power of the cell” which makes game development painful

    Most of these games are released on PS4 too due the easiness to port it between the different Sony’s consoles. And in addition there 10 millions of PS3 and only 3 millions of PS4 in Japan.

  • gwadahunter2222

    Didn’t do the same thing for the GameCube with Twilight Princess ?

  • Grayares Fakcot

    i genuinely want to play it since i play anything with waifus

  • Grayares Fakcot

    ps3 version sells one tenth of the ps4 version though. so install base says nothing

  • Uncle Ocelot

    You’re still playing the PS3 version, albeit remotely. Nobody says there are no Super Nintendo exclusives because of emulation either.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    you should rush to iso sites to download them and wait to play on an emu

  • Grayares Fakcot

    im eagarly waiting for valkyria azure

  • Uncle Ocelot

    “just to name a few”
    That’s basically it outside of Mario and Sonic, Mighty No. 9 (lol) and Nintendo Selects rereleases.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Never said the PS4 had no games.

  • Jumanji Joe

    “Censorblade x”
    “Censored idol session’s”

    You have to be high

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    I doubt there will be a Bayonetta 3. It sold less than Bayonetta 1 and that game only sold a mill on the PS3 and 360. Unless Nintendo wants to try another failed move in getting the gamers they shoved away during the Wii’s run back, we won’t see another one. Nintendo should terminate or sell the exclusivity deal to bring it multiplatform and let Platinum games make money off of those sales.

    I don’t want Nintendo taking that IP down with them.

  • Anime Boy

    This is why Nichegamer and the rest of you users here are labeled as cancerous.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Every Nintendo console barring the Wii has sold millions less than its predecessor. This isn’t good news for the Switch.

  • Kiryu

    Biggest flop in gaming history.

  • Smug

    by who? Reddit? 4cuck? you? lel

  • Anime Boy

    The fact you went from Gematsu to here proves how miserable you are.

  • Anime Boy

    You should know.

    Why the fuck should answer that?

  • Grayares Fakcot

    not even close. i think that’s virtualboy

  • Grayares Fakcot

    even if nintendo put bayonetta IP up for sale nobody would buy it. thats why it went to nintendo in the first place

  • Ankoku Tou

    The fact that you had to go through his profile just to know where he posted from proves how obsessive you are. Well, excuse him PRINCESS for rejoicing in shitty company management.

  • Kiryu

    I’m talking about available consoles,the virtual boy wasnt available everywhere,i’ve never seen one in real life.

  • Anime Boy

    Shut the fuck up. Let him or her speak for themselves. Stop that white knight shit. That’s not how you get dick or pussy.

  • Ankoku Tou

    Just pointing out your hypocrisy and needless whining on some random comment on some news article on some gaming site. Funny how you had to stalk the dood from Gematsu to here, just to point it out, all while hiding under a private profile.

  • Kiryu

    Names Star Fox Turd as a game,that’s like naming Knack as a PS4 must buy.

  • Guin

    At least it had #FE….no, even I can’t defend that thing.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I thought it got to 1 million? I’d say that’s not too bad for a Wii U game.

  • Anime Boy

    If someone is fake, I’m calling them out on their bullshit. Simple as that.

    Obviously, you just jumping to conclusions with no car facts. I didn’t stalk anyone. I wanted to read nichegamer users mentally ill miserable comments.

    I mean, your comment is the worse. Pissing on console is funny. The ones who give you ego points for that shit are low as fuck. How would you feel if someone pissed on your favorite console? I hope you don’t plan on having a family with that mindset.

    I’m glad I kept my profile private. It’s my privacy dumbass. I do it for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, etc. Mostly the cool kids websites.

  • Guin

    Because you’re anime cuck.

  • Guin

    The fact you said “cool kids website” unironically makes you more of a fucking laughing stock.

  • Anime Boy

    It’s not my fault you are all shitty judgemental shallow asshole people. Maybe y’all should stop watching Ecchi anime and that wafui shit.

  • Bob Smith

    COUNTLESS!

    Top kek.

  • Guin

    Maybe you should stop being a cuck, cuck.

  • Anime Boy

    But I’m getting pussy though…

  • Kiryu

    He thinks he has privacy on Facebook,he really just confirmed he’s an idiot.

  • Bob Smith

    Valkyria, Yakuza, and Miku alone pretty much dump all over modern Nintendo at this point.

  • Anime Boy

    Sure.

  • Ankoku Tou

    “I wanted to read nichegamer users mentally ill miserable comments.”
    I wonder what’s worse, miserable comments or the person wanting to read said miserable comments.

    “I hope you don’t plan on having a family with that mindset.”
    I assume that you’re telling yourself that, as you’re the one coming here to specifically look for said comments.

  • Guin

    Yeah, keep telling yourself that while you keep stroking Garfield.

  • Kiryu

    Don’t tease him too much or else he will post a pic of his girlfriends tits here just to prove it.

  • Anime Boy

    Don’t try to twist my words fake ass two face circle jerk pinocchio nose bitch.

    I made my point clear. This website is toxix cancer, but it’s labeled as the best gaming website, which is bullshit. A community like this doesn’t deserve that title.

  • Ankoku Tou

    Right and I wonder who’s a bigger cancer.
    A random comment expressing dissent.
    Or some guy coming here posting

    “This is why Nichegamer and the rest of you users here are labeled as cancerous.”
    While searching for random comments to satisfy his depraved exotic lust.

    Remember, talk shit, get shit.

  • Smug

    dont complain when you’ll get that alimony and child support stuff later

  • NeoTruth

    “How would you feel if someone pissed on your favorite console?”
    When someone criticizes a console I like I ignore them. How fucking old are you man? You’re offended someone doesn’t like the shit you like? Bitch and complain that other peoples comments are mentally ill? The hypocrisy is bleeding out of your post. Get that ignorant control freak mindset out of here, and piss the fuck off. Your only proving you have no idea what your talking about.

  • Anime Boy

    This website already cancer dipshit.

    I’m shit posting because the website is already shit.

  • NeoTruth

    Your comments are just stupid shit, don’t put them on the same level as actual shitposting.

  • Ankoku Tou

    “Let him or her speak for themselves.” he said.
    But if he criticize a console or a the way a company functions, that’s a big no-no.

  • Anime Boy

    Did I pull a nerve asshole?

    I guess your true colors are finally showing.

    There’s no criticizes, just unbiased hate.

  • Kaihaku

    I’m surprised that they didn’t shut down hardware production sooner considering how they’ve handled software support for the Wii U in 2016.

    Star Fox Zero and Paper Mario Color Splash were promising titles marred by awkward gameplay elements. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE has fringe of the fringe appeal. It’s abundantly clear that Breath of the Wild was delayed to launch on the NX… I remember how frustrated I was during the Wii U’s first software drought when Ubisoft and Square Enix delayed completed games that had been started as Wii U exclusives so that they could be launched on other platforms simultaneously. Only a few years later Nintendo is doing the exact same thing to their own customers. To be clear, I don’t care that Breath of the Wild, Rayman Legends, or Dues Ex Human Revolutions Director’s Cut were ported to other systems but I do mind that they were delayed unnecessarily during software droughts. If a game is finished, release it…the port can come later. This is the most dissatisfied that I’ve ever been with a Nintendo console…and it’s not the Wii U itself, it’s how Nintendo has supported it… The Wii U is – I guess we can say was – a console with a tremendous amount of potential that Nintendo almost completely failed to realize. Nintendo’s best games on the system barely used the second screen in the gamepad – at which point they should have cut out the gamepad and just called it Wii HD.

  • Anime Boy

    I don’t know, your dumbass miserable shallow judgemental cunt self took the bait and getting over worked.

    It’s funny because I’m not talking to your ass.

  • NeoTruth

    He’s just some triggered hippocrate creating hate.

  • NeoTruth

    Now you are now that I called you out on your garbage, not event worth a shit, comments. Feeling triggred? Cry more.

  • Anime Boy

    So what the fuck is this?

    I thought I was talking to the same person, but it’s just another white knight.

  • NeoTruth

    You cant tell, because your so mad you cant read the comments properly.

  • Ankoku Tou

    That’s you being a blind dipshit.

  • Kaihaku

    Nintendo didn’t really put out much that really showcased what it could do aside from Nintendoland and Mario Maker. There are a couple of non-Nintendo titles that did some interesting things with it; namely Affordable Space Adventures, ZomibU’s multiplayer, and Wonderful 101. I’m also hoping that Hex Heroes is still released on the Wii U despite it being basically abandoned by Nintendo.

  • Anime Boy

    Nope. Just waiting for you to shut the fuck up and mind your own damn business.

  • Kaihaku

    They did buy up Atlus. Smartest move they’ve made in a long time.

  • NeoTruth

    Your commenting to me again, not doing good job “not talking to my ass”. Seeing red? Get more mad Lol.

  • Kaihaku

    Corporate double speech. Just like them saying, “What I want to do, I think our first job right now is to make sure that the customers, those 10 million customers who have a Wii U at home have software to play, and we need to make sure that they are satisfied with their purchase and continue to enjoy playing on this platform. So we can’ just abandon them and say, ‘Hey, it’s time to move on to the next thing.'”

  • Anime Boy

    Both of y’all need to stop that white knight shit and get laid. Yup, I pulled that card.

  • OSad

    CEMU is getting there extremely fast, soon you won’t even need to think about the console to play either version of the game.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Yry7_Ut7Zg

    Right now the game doesn’t render the prologue area properly, so it’s unplayable, but it works at a decent framerate. With all the games opening and working out of the box, it’s just a matter of time though.

    I kinda want to own a WiiU just because it’s going away but playing Splatoon on this thing the past few weeks is rapidly erasing all motives to buy even a used one.

  • Scorching Sirius

    How can it have the “best exclusives this gen”, when this gen isn’t even over yet?

  • NeoTruth

    Because getting laid has to do with the topic the news is about. Brilliant deduction dumbass. The only thing your pulling is nonsense out of your ass.

  • Anime Boy

    Like you give a shit about this news

  • NeoTruth

    Give a shit enough to get cancer like you off this site.

  • Scorching Sirius

    Stella Glow was a good game.

  • Anime Boy

    Are you dumb as rocks?

    This website is cancer.

  • OSad

    Holy shit fam, stop replying seriously to this guy, he wants a reaction out of you.

    You stop responding, he goes away and stops hurling all over the comments section.

  • Scorching Sirius

    Wow. It died before the PS3. Lol

  • NeoTruth

    No, you are. Everyone one of your posts is you being a whiny triggered little bitch.

  • Anime Boy

    Oh another white knight.

  • Kaihaku

    I cannot express my disappointment strongly enough that nothing along the lines of Crystal Chronicles ended up on the Wii U.

  • Anime Boy

    You shouldn’t be talking.

  • NeoTruth

    Yeah I should. Just want to see how many more tears you can make. Keeping turning red.

  • Qmish

    “so far”

  • Qmish

    Dreamcast was shorter and had wider library :o

  • Qmish

    why? gameplay is good. dat stupid censorship though

  • Anime Boy

    Y’all white knights are lame as fuck. I’m out.

  • John Smith.

    It was only a matter time before this failure of a system was shot down.

  • NeoTruth

    Bye cancer. No one will miss you.

  • Qmish

    PC lacks railshooters (lightgun?). I love Blue Estate, but its the only one before Gal Gun. Stupid “fps or die” mindset ><

  • Qmish

    He also doesn’t know a thing about Border Break and other modern Sega games for arcades, haha (too bad they never got ported to consoles oops)

  • Sega does what Nintendon’t

    <3

  • Anime Boy

    Nintendo Wii U was the best console with amazing video games.

    Fuck the haters and their shitty taste. They can choke off a dick and die.

  • Yeah…but I bet it will get some bizarre dedicated games by mini studios that will release oldschool arcade 2d shoot’em ups for it in some years. :P

  • Anime Boy

    I’m free to do whatever the fuck I want.

  • Qmish

    770 000 virtual boys were sold, who are those people?

  • That doesn’t mean that the platform wasn’t dropped or being considerably phased out, it is just impossible to ignore selling games for a platform with that many systems out in the wild.

    FIFA was still releasing on the PS2 till 2014 for example: http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/fifa-15-finally-drops-ps2-after-13-years-there-s-no-wii-u-version-either/0134062

    FIFA lasted till a later date on the PS2 than the fairly new Wii U.

  • You need to stop having on my secret fetish, man.

    (I mean Otome stuff, not Pixeline)

  • OldPalpy

    Oh look another person who labels people as cancerous because they mock the Wii U. The only thing cancerous here is the Wii U which was such a flop that it makes the Gamecube look like the rebirth of the NES.

  • John Smith.

    Nooo, that was the Sega 32X.

  • Kiryu

    Collectors probably.

  • OldPalpy

    If it had such amazing video games why weren’t they moving consoles sales?

    How cute,this faggot assumes we have the same age.
    Now go back to your safe space or you might get cancer here.

  • Qmish

    I heard people comparing Switch to Sega Nomad and Sega Mega Jet too :D

  • Deplorable_chris

    Totally Cucked.. cuck

  • OldPalpy

    Based off that the Wii U was coming off the juggernaut of the Wii and didn’t manage to hardly any ground due to that makes a it a bigger flop than the 32X. I think it’s more comparable to the Saturn which suffered greatly from third party support, Sega’s studios struggling to get games out that they desperately needed like Sonic Xtreme, hardware that was a pain to work and not comparable to it’s competition and Sony beating them to a pulp on the market level, the Wii U suffered from all of those as well.

  • Well, still better than an Atari Jaguar 64 or 3D0 comparison I guess ;-)

  • Qmish

    Nomad/Jet comparisons were because of portativity vs. home concept, i mean.

  • Qmish

    unless u say there were pocket jaguar or 3do who read usual carts 0o

  • RockstarRepublic

    If you include games they also publish, there is quite a bit to pull from. A great example is Alien Isolation.

    Nintendo has more popular 1st party titles than SEGA did. Mario, Zelda, Metroid…ect these will pretty much do well on any system they can pop up on. Nintendo can continue to publish 3rd party titles as well, just not in the capacity of their own designed hardware (exclusivity).

  • randr01d

    Nintendo doesn’t have the Bayonetta IP. Sega does. Nintendo has the Bayonetta 2 IP only.

  • Smug

    Besides Arcana Famiglia on PSP, I dont have good experience with otome in general. It’s often the same bishi artstyle used and otome seem to have an allergy to facial hair on male characters

  • So how long ’till Nintendo dies off from the console making business and starts porting and programming their games to sony, xbox and PC?

  • AR7777

    If you don’t like it here why do you post?

  • AR7777

    I beat 3dworld at a friend’s place on cemu, aside from one stage where the platforms got bugged and fell as soon as you stepped on them, some minor graphical glitches and a few slowdowns on some stages it was impressive emulation.

  • LOL, you just made me remember that back in December 1995, the Virtual Boy was given free with a SNES buy here in Mexico.

    Edit: or was in 1996, well the thing is that they were giving away as a freebie with any new SNES unit.

  • rergerger

    Good night sweet prince.

  • Deplorable_chris

    naw, the only thing he can pull is his own man meat. If he can even find it, that is >_<

  • Deplorable_chris

    you clearly don’t give a crap about the news either. Tell me, who’s paying you to troll here? because it is seriously pathetic if you’re doing this for free.

  • AR7777

    In Grayares defense, even if they are technically not console exclusives but playstation exclusives it helps his case against WiiU.

    For example Persona 5 will be on PS3 and PS4, how is this good for Xbone and WiiU? “lol it’s not PS4 exclusive, WiiU has better exclusives”
    In the end PS4 users will be playing Persona 5 while competing platform users won’t be.

  • AR7777

    Well, it’s over for WiiU.

  • AR7777

    He’s doing it for free like any other sjw cuckold would, note how he seems to have a problem with ero anime and waifus, textbook sjw.
    He’s probably going to show this comment section to some of his fat female sjw internet friends in hopes of at least getting a picture of a pussy.

  • larverto365

    Watch as the Nintendo Switch gets shot and killed within seven months of it’s release.

  • Audie Bakerson

    So long for a console with some great games that got screwed over by NoA every chance they got.

  • Minuteworld92

    and decaf, unlike cemu, that’s open source.

  • Minuteworld92

    you’re thinking of sega of america because they rarely bring anything over here.

    sega of japan has tons of games.

  • Minuteworld92

    the dreamcast was something special and I never had it.

  • Minuteworld92

    >countless classic games

    just get a pc and download some emulators for free.

  • Minuteworld92

    so I guess the new zelda won’t be coming to the wiiu then?

    dammit I really wanted to play that on cemu/decaf…

  • Finally they put the Wii U out of it’s misery. How long until they do that for the switch?

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    It got 750k. Considering the Previous game sold a million and Platinum said the sequel wouldn’t have happened if Nintendo didn’t grab exclusivity I think 1 million isn’t good for Platinum games. Keep in minds they had a 5 game deal with Sega that didn’t generate good sales at all either. Platinum Games makes awesome titles that no one buys.

  • That is still coming to the Wii U and will be the last game released for the system.

  • Nintendo of Japan was the ones mostly fucking the system over.

  • Post Konami Kojima

    Xenoblade was fantastic

  • So you finally accept that the switch is replacing both. You may not be as crazy as OriginalBloodAce after all.

  • Kiryu

    Be patient,will come sooner then you expect.

  • Drone please.

  • edge

    Eh xbx was OK, the original Xenoblade was really good though. Xbx suffered a weaker story and then there was the weird censorship, while not ruining the game certainly stifled some of the enjoyment. Overdrive was weaker than than the previous battle system and the lack of a topple mechanic was a little lame. Though some of that is probably from having a character creator which prevented specialized moves tuned to the character. The producer himself did state most of the budget was focused on developing the open world since they’d never done it before, that aside the environments were beautiful and the soundtrack pretty amazing. I wish they hadn’t taken out the slider which kind of stifled my hype and enjoyment a bit. (I didn’t want to support NoA, but I love the xeno series and had been hyped for it a year in advance)

    The press managed to convince people that the Wii U was not a good purchase to make.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Lost World was okay.

  • Travis Touchdown

    More games.

    PS3 has… what? Dark Souls and Yakuza 5?

  • Travis Touchdown

    It’s not a traditional replacement and both will still continue to be supported with new software releases.

    But yes, Switch is their next big thing.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Good luck emulating BOTW.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Because there are no other exclusives on the horizon that can even match what the Wii U has already put out.

  • Travis Touchdown

    >Paid

    you do realize that this all a hoax, don’t you?

  • Minuteworld92
  • OldPalpy

    If you enjoy 3d platformers that control like absolute shit, that piece of garbage is like if Gameloft made a Mario Galaxy clone and got the license to Sonic. It can only really be considered “okay” in comparison to the disaster that was Boom ROL.

  • OldPalpy

    The press that dogpiled the Wii and many of it’s top selling games to zero effect? Not likely. Wii U is Nintendo own fault and they know it.

  • VLOCKUP

    Because he is being a cuck to himself.

  • Audie Bakerson

    NCL hasn’t destroyed good games for no reason like NoA did.

  • Travis Touchdown

    It’s really not that bad.

  • Paper Mario and Metroid.

  • Wii U will not be supported.

  • TheManWithPants

    And not a Single Fuck was given that Day.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    Nintendo 64 never got a Metroid game

  • AR7777

    Didn’t they release that mario run thing for cell phones already?
    Nintendo is probably two console flops away from going multiplat

  • Dr. Roswell. W
  • Eldhin Hellknight

    Hahaha…. A good console was indeed, but not the best. Weak hardware, almost no third party games, no Metroid game, region lock, and bullshitty censored games by Nintendo are enough to call it the worst console. Hopefully, they Will do better with switch

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    I think that Other M is good. Not great, but not bad

  • Raziel Barkrai

    Awesome titles that no one buys but somehow is everyone’s favorite developer.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Dual release with BOTW says otherwise.

  • Not really as that game was announced years ago and will be the last game for the wii u. tell me when a new game gets announced for the Wii U.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    well said.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    nice joke bro
    it’s the best console if all you play are nintendo titles

  • Grayares Fakcot

    to be honest i’d like to play starfox but not knack

  • Grayares Fakcot

    yea. that’s where ill be playing TMS on, cemu.

  • Guin

    The rest didn’t live up to the expectations or just simply broke it to be this “special snowflake” of both franchises.

  • Mr. Capo

    I only want like 3 games on the Wii U and that’s it. Even though it had great games like W101 and Pikmin 3 Nintendo fucked up big time with the console because of the following reasons:

    – Censored games
    – Region locked
    – Underpowered
    – The name (since people thought Wii U is an add-on of the Wii)
    – Questionable games like Star Fox Zero and Colour Splash

  • gwadahunter2222

    Since the Wii’success Nintendo must find a new revolutionary concept of gameplay if they hope to sell a home console.

    The Switch is a safe way to capitalize on the leadership on handheld.

    In case of failure they have just to switch the PR tactics, release a portable version of the console and pretend the console was always a handheld.

  • patyos

    Hope they atleast have some form of backward compatibility or atleast WiiU games in the eshop for the Switch

  • patyos

    Dang I have half of these GBA games on that list XD

  • patyos

    If only a new Crystal Chronicles MULTIPLAYER home console game was to come out.

    I know Crystal Chronicles The Crystal Bearers was on the Wii but that was Single player

  • Grayares Fakcot

    id play their games if they were on pc. ill never buy their consoles though

  • Scorching Sirius

    Yeah, in YOUR opinion. You’ve never played Bloodbourne, Uncharted 4, The Last Guardian, etc., so what would you know?

  • The Last of us and Bioshock infinite are amazing. Both are also not on Nintendo platforms LMAO.

  • Bret Hart

    WiiU is the perfect example of dropping the ball hard after the success of the Wii. Awful name, awful advertising, no third party support, big ugly controller, slow OS. I liked some games on the system like Bayonetta 2, Smash, Mario Kart, Splatoon and Donkey Kong but that ain’t enough to drive interest in the system. Nintendo will need to do the exact opposite with the Switch if it wants me to purchase their system anymore.

  • ProxyDoug

    Probably NeoFAG.

  • Audie Bakerson

    The new Paper Mario was never a good game and Federation Force’s main game was made by a Canadian studio under NoA’s direction so…

  • alterku

    That may have been the game to sell the system to me.

  • Daniel Sever

    Nintendo isn’t going to stop wii u production just letting you guys know. This source was wrong. As Nintendo came out and said that this morning.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    Who the fuck cares? This is entirely the fault of poor marketing and mismanagement, especially in NA. Why the fuck are you so salty about this? I like my WiiU but it had a really lame run.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    “It’s not my fault you are all shitty judgemental shallow asshole people”
    How can one person lack so much fucking self-awareness?

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    You need to go back and read the definition of exclusive.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    PS exclusive. you can’t play it with nintendo, xbox or pc.
    Saying PS4 has no exclusives doesn’t make them playable on any other platform else.

  • Kakaku

    An update. The report was false. The Wii U is continuing production.

    http://www.siliconera.com/2016/11/02/wii-u-production-isnt-ending-november-4-2016/

  • I find it funny that you forgot Metroid other M which was all Nintendo of Japan’s fault. Nintendo japan killed off so many great series like Paper Mario, F-zero, and Metroid. They are way worse than NOA…

  • Audie Bakerson

    Ssh. Forgeting Other M is intentional.

    I never said NCL didn’t do horrible things to franchises, but they haven’t taken an existing GAME and made it terrible, just franchises.

  • Joe

    Calling it Censorblade is ridiculous. The game has tons of bikinis and the bunny outfits are skimpy as hell, you can even see the butt crack.

    The breast slider is slightly unfortunate but after putting hundreds of hours into XCX I couldn’t care less honestly. Boobs are nice and all but the world and battle system and music and especially the mechs are way cooler than any boobs could ever be.

    It’s not like the female avatar character is totally flat chested, anyhow, she looks fine and dare I say it, attractive. What you’d expect an athletic person to look like who runs back and fourth across an entire planet.

  • Joe

    I think the Wii U’s failure speaks more to the failure of Nintendo home consoles in general since the SNES. As far as I’m concerned, the Wii U is far superior to the Wii (shovelware bowling system) and Nintendo 64 (foggy character platformer system). Wii U is about equal to the Gamecube, with better games overall even though Gamecube still has one of the greatest analog sticks of all time. Only the NES and SNES are actually better systems with a superior game catalog.

    In other words, the Wii U is just another symptom of the same disease that has afflicted Nintendo for over 20 years now.

    I doubt the Switch will be the cure.

    All that said, I have gotten far more than my money’s worth out of my Wii U in Xenoblade X alone. One of my top 5 games of all time and I’m still playing it.

  • AR7777

    Dreamcast mops the floor with the WiiU.

  • Uncle Slick

    Totally serious.

  • Uncle Slick

    I love my Wii U, to be honest.

    A shame it didn’t sell better, but that just means the games I don’t have will probably be cheaper (or more expensive, depending)

    Goodnight, sweet prince.

  • Uncle Slick

    They already have the 3DS, and that does great sales still.

    Or do you mean real like “real bad” ala PS Vita?

  • Uncle Slick

    Had more exclusives than Xbone and PS4.

    My PC says “fuck you” to those consoles.

  • Uncle Slick

    Probably never. If they ever stop making home consoles, they’ll just stick to where they have the monopoly.

    Portable gaming.

  • AR7777

    Dude, I own a 3DS, it’s a great system.
    Try to grasp some context on the comments you’re replying to. If we are talking about Switch being a 3DS successor and then I reply they’ll rush to make a real portable system it’s obvious I’m talking about Switch not being a real portable system not the 3DS.

  • Uncle Slick

    I don’t need to “try to grasp” anything. I know what I’m replying to.

    Nintendo has said over and over again the Switch IS NOT a replacement for the 3DS.

    The Switch isn’t a portable system, it’s a hybrid system, with it’s own games. It’s essentially what the Wii U wanted to be with that dumb pad thing, but actually good.

    But again, it’s not a replacement. They said it, don’t believe me? Google is your friend.

  • InkBrush

    Blame SEGA of America trying to appease the fucking cancerous Sonic Fags for not paying attention to SEGA of Japan’s other stuff.

  • AR7777

    Well I agree with you mate, Switch isn’t a real portable and that’s what I said in the first comment.
    If Nintendo doesn’t abandon 3DS then it has at least 4 more years of life but this is not the first time they talked about a “Third Pillar”.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    usual nintendo lies.

  • Dom The Elegy

    Shit, you’re right. Completely forgot about the N64, I guess the SNES with Super Metroid and the Gamecube with Metroid Prime 1&2 shone bright enough to make me forget that dark spot.

    Also yeah, but that’s a shitty spin-off at best. If you count that you might as well count Hyrule Warriors.

  • Travis Touchdown

    I only just now realized this was an Emily Rogers rumor.

    She really is losing relevancy if she has to keep piggybacking off of Eurogamer and SJW fuck ups like Laura Kate Dale.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Just like back in March?

    These stories have been circulating for YEARS, and yet people still fall for them.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    just like when they said the new 3ds didnt exist, the ds wont replace gba, the “we wont do games for mobile”, the “we wont do dlcs”, the “we will announce NX early 2016”, the “we won’t do gacha”, the “we wont sell MIi’s clothes and such as DLC”, the “we will not sell unfinished games”, the x the y and the z.

    you want more?

  • Grayares Fakcot

    so this emily rogers is an employee at nihon keisai newspaper?

  • I see, I’ve got no problem with that as long as it is done well (not just the visuals but the supporting story and so on). We could definitely use some more stand-out artstyles (Gakuen Handsome seems to be the main one) but it is the opposite side of the cute girl spectrum and people will buy what they want and make what they want.

    Capcom’s recent Palm game doesn’t dip outside of the norms on paper but it looks fantastic if that counts for anything: http://www.capcom.co.jp/palm

  • Kakaku

    You’re right. Its not a complete halt in productions, but Nintendo is going to end production of the WII U in Japan very soon.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    nintendo just literally confirmed it.

    usual nintendo lies.
    always nintendo lies.
    everytime nintendo lies.

  • Kakaku

    Yup. The Wii U is stopping production in Japan.
