Wii U Production Has Officially Ended in Japan

Now that we’re practically one month removed from the launch of the Nintendo Switch, it should come as no surprise that the Wii U is ended production for various parts of the world. According to Nintendo Japan, they are no longer producing Wii U’s in Japan, meaning that there will be no more restocks of the console moving forward in that country. There have been rumors circulating for awhile that Wii U production ended late last year for most of the west, which could explain why I’ve had a hard time find any brand new units on store shelves.

There are still reasons to buy a Wii U beyond a collectors standpoint, as the Nintendo Switch is not backwards compatible.
