Nikkeiis reporting that Nintendo intends to halt Wii U production during 2016.

According to Japanese newspaper Nikkei, Nintendo will be ending its production of their home console.

Should this be the end of the Wii U, it would be calling it quits with just 4 years of production under its belt. There is still plenty of back stock that needs to be pushed through as well. According to a story on Polygon, the Wii U has sold 12 million units, whereas the Wii sold more than 100 million units. The Wii U's sales are roughly one-tenth the lifetime sales of Nintendo's previous console, the Wii.

The tone and tenor of the campaign will eventually shift away from divisiveness, Trump suggested Wednesday. Marco Rubio dropped out of the race after a hugely disappointing finish in Florida, where he's a senator.

It's unclear whether the company will continue to launch any kind of titles for the Wii U or if it plans to abandon it entirely. This will not be the case with Nintendo, which is slated to announce the NX console as early as this year.

Since the 1983 introduction of the Family Computer system, which has sold about 62 million units worldwide, Nintendo has released new video game consoles every several years.

If the Wii U truly dies out this year, it would join the likes of Microsoft's Xbox and Sega's Dreamcast as one of the shortest-lived major consoles in history. The console will probably be the Nintendo NX. The Wii U never quite took off like its incredibly popular predecessor, and it will soon be replaced by a potential 2017 consol. "But first our job at this point is to support the consumers who have purchase Wii U and make sure that they have software experiences available to them".
