Zelda will be Nintendo’s final game for the ‘end of life’ Wii U

Nintendo has just confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the last first-party game for the company’s soon to be replaced Wii U. It’s a bittersweet moment for die-hard fans of the console — and yes, they exist.

Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime told Polygon after the switch event earlier this week in New York that “from a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming… We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

Fortunately, the game is looking to be a hell of a swan song, and people chary of picking up a Switch at launch will be happy to learn that the two versions of the game, for Nintendo’s outgoing and incoming consoles, should be nearly identical.
