A new report out of Japan says that Nintendo will end the production of the Wii U by the end of the year.

The Wii U could not continue the success Nintendo had with the Wii. In my household we still have lots of fun with the Wii. It is perfect for young kids. Nintendo is working on the Nintendo NX, but has not revealed anything about the console besides that it exists.

Today Japanese newspaper Nikkei reports that Nintendo will end the production of the Wii U end of the year. The Wii U came on the market end of 2012. The Sony PS4 and the Xbox One demolished though the Wii U with more better graphics, performance and in the end better games.

Nintendo will announced the new Nintendo NX this year, but it is not clear when the NX will go on sale. The Nintendo NX is rumored to include a portable console unit. Another rumor says that the NX is based on Android.

Nintendo just launched the first smartphone game, in a first move to open up its video games to other platforms. I am still waiting for Mario on the iPhone.
