Coming from Nintendo
“As recently posted by Nintendo on the Wii U website in Japan, Wii U production will end in the near future for the Japanese domestic market. We have nothing to announce in terms of exact timing.
We can confirm that as of today, all Wii U hardware that will be made available in the North American market for this fiscal year has already been shipped to our retail partners. We encourage anyone who wants Wii U to communicate with their preferred retail outlet to monitor availability.”
Isn't it funny how this rumor popped up a couple weeks back and Nintendo said it wasn't true? Fast-forward those two weeks and now the info is true. I guess word got out just a tad early?
