Nintendo Wii U: Four Years Later

wiiufeature01So everyone knows the general view of Nintendo’s current generation console, the Wii U.

One thought on “Nintendo Wii U: Four Years Later

  1. I know what you mean, I love my Wii u and it is a great shame that it was not as successful as the the Wii. I have over 40 games on mine (30 of them physical) and enjoy playing all of them. I will be getting the switch because being a news website dedicated to all things Nintendo, I have to keep up with the tech but I am not ready to retire the Wii U just yet either.
