The Wii U is back, baby!
The Switch is a runaway hit for Nintendo, selling over 130+ million units and it’s still going strong. This is an incredible turnaround from Nintendo’s last console, the Wii U. That platform sold just over 13 million in its entire run, failing to find an audience anywhere in the world.
While Nintendo has long since moved on from the Wii U, it seems one Nintendo fan out there has not. According to Circana’s Mat Piscatella, one new Wii U unit was sold in the United States in September 2023. Of course, we don’t know who it was that purchased that Wii U, but hopefully they’re a happy customer!
To put things into even more perspective, this is the first time a new Wii U has sold in the United States since May 2022. If only we could find out why it was this one lone customer decided now was the time to buy a Wii U!
