In a recent interview with Polygon at the Nintendo Switch Launch Event in New York, Nintendo America President Reggie Fil-Aime has confirmed that Zelda: Breath Of The Wild will indeed be the last game developed by Nintendo for the Wii U and that there are no more games in development for it. He has stated that support for the console will still continue which includes selling it’s software in retail and online and that online services will NOT be ending any time soon as there is still a large community of gamers playing Mario Kart 8 Splatoon that Nintendo will continue to support.

Here is what Reggie had to say:

“From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of the legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” he said. “We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

“From our standpoint, sunsetting is quite some time into the future. The ongoing activity from an online standpoint on [Mario] Kart and Splatoon is significant. We’re going to continue to support that.”

“Even today when I ask people, ‘so what was Wii U all about?,’ I get a wide variety of responses,” he said. “In managing the business, that’s just not good.”
