Wii U Unit Reduction Slide

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima announced plans to taper the production of Wii U hardware for this fiscal year. The company expects to ship only 800,000 new Wii U units by the end of March 2017. During the previous fiscal year, they expected to ship 3.4 million units.

The large drop-off is due in part to the release of the company’s next platform, codenamed “NX,” which is slated to launch worldwide in March.
