The Nikkei reports the Wii U may cease production this year as the NX is confirmed to be unveiled.
It looks like Nintendo is aiming to clear its inventory of Wii U accessories and products by the end of the year. While the Wii U will cease production this year, the Nikkei doesn’t confirm whether or not the NX will be sold by the end of 2016, they apparently confirm that it will be unveiled by then though.
Japan seems to be the one feeling the loss of the system already as it was previously reported that the country has had a shortage of the console.
