Nintendo Denies Nikkei Report That Wii U Production Is Stopping This Year

Wii U

Nikkei earlier today reported that Nintendo would be stopping production of the Wii U by the end of the year.
Nintendo has now denied that report, as reported by Japanese site NetLab, a spokesperson for Nintendo told them the report didn’t come from them and that they intend to continue production of the Wii U during the next fiscal year and beyond.  So this report of Nintendo ceasing production of the Wii U seems to be false, not that something being proven false has ever stopped anyone from repeating it endlessly until it’s widespread and considered “truth.”

He's been playing video games his entire life, and has gotten progressively worse at them as he's gotten older and more decrepit. He's been running this place (into the ground) since 2013. He's old. Keeps writing about Nintendo despite mountains of evidence proving he should never write anything. Very old. Lifelong Nintendo fan, doesn't care what you think about that. Did I mention how old he is? Because he's very old.

    Called it. I made a discussion on my disqus channel, advising people not to trust anything Nikkei says.

      What’s your opinion on the controller pic?

          Why do you think so? The GI staff said it matches what he heard about it…but then again, it’s the GI staff.

            Until Nintendo announces the NX, anything, pics or information is speculative. Besides, anything can be photoshopped
