Wii U

Reggie: Zelda is Final Wii U Game, Games Will Still Be Sold, Online WIll Continue

Wii U

Reggie confirmed to Polygon that Breath of the Wild is Nintendo’s final game for the system.

“From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

He also said that games will continue to be sold at retail, and that online services would continue.

“From our standpoint, sunsetting is quite some time into the future. The ongoing activity from an online standpoint on [Mario] Kart and Splatoon is significant. We’re going to continue to support that.”

I don’t regret buying the Wii U at all, and I will continue playing games on it long after the Switch is out. It was a good system that wasn’t marketed properly, which Nintendo themselves have admitted. I won’t get into how the media acted during its reveal, there’s no point anymore.


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.
