The Wii U debuted over two years ago and certainly had quite a rough start for a number of reasons. From the confusing name to very little game support early, the console was basically written off by many. However, the console bounced back strongly in the latter category in 2014 behind games like Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. After Nintendo’s much improved quarter, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has weighed in on the future of the Wii U.
According to Japanese site DualShockers, Iwata and Nintendo are far from done with the latest Nintendo console.
“Wii U is not over yet. I want to continue to build on playing on people’s high expectations [for the system].”
That was not all that Iwata mentioned about the Wii U either, as he revealed that there are still a number of unannounced games for the console yet to come. With the way Nintendo uses their bi-monthly Nintendo Directs to reveal major news, we could easily see some reveals in the next few months.
Hopefully this means that we may have some of the most requested series making a comeback in the near future, specifically with Metroid and F-Zero. While there is already talk that Nintendo is working on the next console behind the scenes, at least they are still sticking with the Wii U and not abandoning it for the next few years, similar to what happened in the latter years for the original Wii.
