    Nintendo to continue Wii U support despite Nintendo NX development shift

    Great news for those concerned about the NX canalizing the Wii U due to poor sales.

    He also said in the same interview that the NX would become the primary focus is their business. It might not be right away, but NX will be replacing Wii U.

    It might not happen overnight, but that would only be because NX games aren't ready yet.

    Well yeah... But even in those cases there are games coming out for 360/PS3 now. I really don't see that happening with Wii U. I'd be surprised if it got a full year's worth of "support" after NX comes out.

    I'm pretty sure they've already said this, but I'm really glad.

    Honestly I'd rather get a Wii U which I already know has games for it that I'll like instead of waiting for a new console that I know nothing about, such as whether or not it'll have backwards compatibility.

    I won't hold my breath that continued support doesn't simply mean a couple more games like Mario Tennis and amiboo festival of sadness being crapped out.

    Even 360 PS3 still had new games after being shelved but only because of 3rd party support.
    I don't have any genuine faith in a statement like that when they couldn't keep the Wii U stocked up with quality titles to people's satisfaction when it was their only platform, let alone when they have 2 home systems to support.

    Unless they plan on drastically enlarging their resources then I'll just say this is spin to keep the Wii U owners from frothing at the mouth too much before NX comes out.

    Awesome! Can't wait for the plethora of Amiibo based crapware for 2016/2017.

    Was that a bit harsh? Maybe...but I just want them to support Wii U with GOOD games after NX's launch.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighhhhhhhhhtttt. Because Wii U hasn't already played second fiddle to the 3DS since it released. They gave up on the Wii U a long time ago.

    I just want them to support one platform wholeheartedly rather than spread themselves thin and be unable to properly support either.

    Yeah, but Nintendo also said that there's a great holiday lineup for Wii U this year...

    It doesn't need the NX to take anything from it. Nintendo already let the 3ds do that lol.
    - I saw six men kicking and punching my mother-in-law. My neighbor walks over and says, "Are you going to help?" I said, "No, six should be enough." -
