John-Charles from Twinfinite writes, "This past week, the gaming industry said goodbye to another good friend. Nintendo quietly announced recently that the production of the Wii would finally come to close. In essence, does this mean that the Wii is finally and truly dead? There are hardly any more Wii games in production, and who needs new ones anyway with the backwards compatible WiiU on the market?
For many people, the Wii has pretty much already been dead for a while– whether since its arguably over-hyped release in 2006 or in the past few years with the release of swan songs Skyward Sword and Xenoblade Chronicles. For me, this final particular nail in the coffin is the true death of the console, and I for one will fondly miss it."
