It’s been a busy week for Nintendo insofar as the rumor mill goes. On one front, the company has been combating reports from Japanese outlet Nikkei that Wii U production is going to be halted.
It has been widely speculated that Nintendo will be launching the successor to Wii U, dubbed NX up to this point, sometime at the end of 2016, which lends some plausibility to the notion that the former might no longer be produced in the very near future. Nintendo has denied otherNikkei reports in the past only to have the information turn out to be true, so it’s anyone’s guess as to whether or not Wii U’s days are really numbered. That said, most consoles tend to continue to be made for at least a year or two (if not longer) following the launch of a new system, so it would definitely behoove fans to wait this rumor out before coming to any final conclusions.
What do you think about all this speculation? Would you go buy a Wii U knowing the system might not be produced anymore in the near future? Do you think Nintendo should wait until E3 to drop NX news? Sound off in the comments below!
