It is December 2020, nearly 4 entire years because the Wii U was discontinued as a result of poor international gross sales and the incoming Nintendo Swap, however we now have one burning query on our minds: are folks nonetheless taking part in this factor on-line?
Sure, our latest pretty YouTube star Jon has taken the Wii U and its good previous clunky GamePad for a 2020 check drive, all in a bid to see simply how fashionable its on-line video games are at this time. Over two periods designed to hit two totally different time zones, we jumped into video games of a number of the Wii U’s greatest sellers (Mario Kart 8, Tremendous Smash Bros. for Wii U, Splatoon), in addition to a good vary of different titles that took our fancy, together with the likes of Tekken Tag Event 2 and Name of Obligation: Black Ops II.
We would urge you to observe the video above – these items take effort, ! – however let’s simply say that we had been pleasantly shocked to see that a lot of the video games we tried nonetheless had devoted gamers leaping on for some on-line enjoyable. A few of these video games, now a number of years previous, have newer, shinier variations accessible and did not promote notably excessive numbers, but nonetheless have an lively fanbase to this present day.
So, is the Wii U actually as useless as folks may have you imagine? Completely not.
