All good things must come to and end.
In an interview with Polygon during the Switch launch event in New York City on Friday, Reggie Fils-Aimé talked about the Wii U and how Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the last Wii U first party game to be released on the fledgling console.
Reggie also reassured people that although no more first party games will be made for the Wii U, that the online services and Nintendo eShop will continue to be available. At this point, no plans have been discussed about when those features will be discountinued.
Although there will be no more Nintendo games after Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be released on the Wii U, we will still be seeing some of those Wii U classics make their way to the Nintendo Switch. The aforementioned Breath of the Wild will be a launch title on the Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 will have a “Deluxe” version released on Switch later on.
There are talks of other Wii U games coming over to the Switch, among them Smash Bros. and others like Splatoon 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 were previously believed to be ports but were confirmed to be full-fledge sequels. Let us know what Wii U games would you like to be ported over to the Switch and how you feld about the Wii U experience over the last 4 years.
