Nintendo to stop production of Wii U videogames
[BENGALURU] Japanese videogame maker Nintendo Co will stop production of the Wii U video game console as early as this year after stagnant sales, Nikkei reported on Tuesday.
A few components of the device have already been stopped and parts inventory will dry up this year, according to Nikkei.
Nintendo's Wii U console has lagged behind Sony Corp's PlayStation and Microsoft Corp's Xbox, while the rise of smartphone games has won over many gamers.
Nintendo could not immediately be reached for comment.
