Rumors have been running thick and fast that Nintendo is going to cease the production of their Wii U consoles. Even though early this month, the company had denied all such speculations surrounding the Wii U, they have now officially confirmed their decision to call an end to the production of the console.
The company had recently unveiled its next device ‘Switch’, a portable tablet that can also work with a television, akin to a console. The price and launch date is expected to be officially announced in January 2017. It is expected that Switch will make its way into the big, wide global market by March 2017.
It is a fact that Nintendo has suffered a huge commercial failure through Wii U. Only 14 million units of the console were sold out globally. That also means that the company managed to pocket only a slice of a figure in the global market.
Meanwhile, another piece of hardware made by Nintendo hit the markets on Friday – The NES Classic Edition. The sticker price of the device screams out that it would be available for $59.99.
At first look, the new innovation is a miniature version of the original machine and the developers have packed it with popular 30 game software titles such as ‘Donkey Kong’, ‘The Legend of Zelda’ and ‘Super Mario Brothers’. Stay tuned for more on that.
