I'm just increasingly cautious is all. So many indie devs are pulling/cancelling games, even ones that were Kickstarted, or stretch goaled, and or otherwise committed to come to Wii U, for eShop. It's depressing.

Not everyone who owns a Wii U is just going to put the thing in the closet or throw it away the day Switch launches. For that matter, not everyone is going to be able to afford to get a Switch anywhere near launch, if they want one. I look at the PS Vita situation, that system has a very equitable amount of total unit sales worldwide as Wii U, yet it still gets a fair amount of digital PSN titles for it, even though it's been a "dead" system that they don't even sell anymore in most stores, for years. I think if that core Vita userbase is obviously still supporting digital titles, then I wish that more indie devs would show a little backbone and try to trust that just maybe, the Wii U digital user base would continue to buy digital software like Yooka-Laylee, and the various other games that have recently been announced as cancelled.

I know Yacht Club seems on the up and up, moreso than most devs, so I trust them. But that doesn't stop me from worrying a little, when so many OTHER studios seem to have abandoned the platform.
