Nintendo has officially stopped production of the Wii U in Japan.

The news comes via the company’s official Japanese website, which lists both the Splatoon Wii U and Premium Wii U models as having their production halted.

We previously reported that Wii U production would be ending soon in Japan, and now we’ve gotten confirmation several months later.

The Wii U initially launched in Japan on December 8th, 2012.
