Is it the end of the road for Wii U? -

Nintendo has forecast Wii U console sales of only 800,000 units for the year ending March 31, 2017, down from the 3.2 million units sold in the previous year.

Such a dramatic drop in sales could indicate the firm is simply allowing for current inventory to be cleared, suggesting production of the console has or will end soon.

Of course, Nintendo NX, which is launching in March 2017, will also begin to turn potential customers away from the older Wii U.

Regarding new games for the Wii U, beyond a new Paper Mario, Nintendo's only major upcoming release is the new Zelda title, although this has now been delayed into 2017 for a simultaneous launch on NX and Wii U.
