Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild Is The Last Game Made For WII U


It sounds like Nintendo won’t release any more Wii U games after The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told Polygon that the highly anticipated RPG, which comes out alongside the Nintendo Switch edition on March 3, could be the last first-party game coming to the underperforming console.

“From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” the executive said. “We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

There might be more new games for the Wii U from Nintendo’s publishing partners, however. Additionally, Fils-Aime’s quote that there is “no new development” for first-party games after Breath of the Wild could be interpreted as Nintendo not starting any new projects after Breath of the Wild; it’s possible some Nintendo games might be in development for the Wii U.

He went on to say that fans can expect Wii U games to continue to be sold at retail and via the Nintendo eShop. Online services for the system and high-profile Nintendo games are staying up for now, Fils-Aime added. Nintendo will shut off online services for games like Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon “some time into the future” but not soon, he said.Also in Polygon’s interview, Fils-Aime spoke candidly about Nintendo’s struggles to effectively communicate to people what the Wii U is. “Even today when I ask people, ‘So what was Wii U all about?,’ I get a wide variety of responses,” he said. “In managing the business, that’s just not good.”
