Who said it was? How come every time a Wii U game launches, we have an article stating the obvious. No one game can save a console, hence why Nintendo has released plenty of quality software for the Wii U so far, with still a few more on the horizon.

We all know that the Wii U is on the downhill journey of its lifespan - Every Nintendo console minus one (Wii) had a 5 year life span. Thus we will most likely only have one more year of software being released for the console with devs having already shifted focus towards the NX that will release most likely in 2017.

It was a good ride. Glad to be part of it. Some of my favorite games this gen were on wii U. The right move to make is to hang onto it after it's over. In 10 years people will be clamoring for these titles with extreme nostalgia sad they missed out when it was still going on and top 10 lists of this gen singing these titles' praises.

Then ride is not over yet. There are still plenty of games I want to play. Heck X is huge. Fatal Frame looks interesting. StarFox hopefully will be more polished with the added time. Also we have Zelda!
Nintendo also announced a new Pikmin(still have not picked up 3 yet).
I do not think NX will release till 2017, so I am sure we will see a couple more surprises for Wii U...just please Nintendo NO AMIBO BOARD GAMES.

NX will release in the Holidays of 2016 and the only retail releases for Wii U in 2016 will be Pokken Tournament and Star Fox

Yes the handheld version of the codename NX that is. If Nintendo is going that route.

Its still an exceptionally great game that will continue to entertain people for years to come. At this point no one game can save Wii U

According to Pachter?!? Then the Wii U is saved!

Does anyone expect Wii U sales to quadruple at this point? Nintendo certainly doesn't.

Just be happy there are still some interesting games being released. If you like the games, sales don't matter.

According to Hoffmann nothing can save the wii U and thats why the NX will be released in 2016 worldwide already.

NX isn't coming that early.
I'd say 2017 at the earliest.
NX is more than likely a code name and not the final product besides, they said they will TALK about it.

Talking about a console and releasing it are two different things.

Stop believing everything you hear

I bet 100 Bison dollars that it is coming next year.

Shnazzyone1211d ago

I'll totally take you up on that. At best a handheld will be released next year, not the NX. Nintendo is on a 5 year cycle and with the steady income of amiibos and 3ds. Nintendo is not even close to hurting enough to make that kind of decision.
