While Nintendo probably had a lot of hopes and good intentions behind their Wii U console, unfortunately the console has not managed to catch on and generate the same amount of hype and excitement that the Sony PS4 and the Microsoft Xbox One has, so much so it seems that one retailer in the UK, Asda, will no longer be stocking the Wii U console, its games or its accessories across its 555 locations. However for those who still need their Wii U games, there are always alternative retailers, although Asda did state that they will continue selling Wii U games through their online website although it will be on a case-by-case basis.
This is definitely not good news for Nintendo who has been struggling with their Wii U console, with Nintendo executives reportedly putting some of the blame on the 2011 Tohoku earthquake as one of the reasons why the Wii U and the 3DS handheld console’s sales have been bad. There are still some titles from Nintendo that have yet to be released, such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. which will undoubtedly attract a lot of interest, but will those titles be enough? We guess we will just have to wait and see!
