After several reports, and then denying those very reports, Nintendo has confirmed it is ending the production of the Wii U soon.

Nintendo has officially announced it will be ending the production of the Wii U soon.

Nintendo’s official Japanese website confirms this as it says “Production is scheduled to end soon” (translated by AllGamesDelta) The image shows the Premium Set 32GB White Wii U is expected to end its production while other Wii U consoles are already listed as being no longer in production.

Today’s news comes after several reports confirmed Nintendo would be ending the production of the Wii U, which the company denied on two separate occasions.

While the production of the Nintendo Wii U is expected to end in Japan, we have yet to hear if other regions will follow suit. We have no doubt that will be the case, but we've reached out to Nintendo for comment and will update our story accordingly.

        If prices don't drop it'll be a good indicator of what the price of the Switch will be.

            I thin if that's the case retail would slash prices to clear stock and make room for more desirable items. Doesn't make sense to let it sit otherwise. A price cut from Nintendo will be a clear indication that they intent to launch the Switch at under 300.

              There's no need to cut the price if it's still moving. Systems do sell even if the replacement is already announced.
