The Wii U wasn’t a bad console by any means. However, it never made as much of an impression with the public as its predecessor. The Wii sold upwards of 101 million units, while its younger sibling barely made 13.6 million. With the Switch landing globally on March 3rd, it’s clear that the company wants to discontinue its less successful device now as to not draw attention from its replacement. The last year or so has seen Nintendo slowly shifting its focus to the future.

The game giant’s upcoming Nintendo Switch console is still four months away from launch, so there is still more to come on the release of the Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned to Video Games Republic to catch the latest on video games, tech, and more.
