They were only off by a week.

Following last week'srumors, Nintendo has officially announced the wind-down of Wii U production in Japan.

A note on Nintendo's hardware page in Japan shows that the deluxe set and Splatoon bundles show "Production is slated to end soon in Japan". The listing is common in Japan, but there is no notice of effects for other territories.

Is the Mario Kart 8 bundle the only one being offered by NOA at this point? It's the only one I've seen on store shelves.

The bell rings the final toll.

Guess they figure they have sold as many Splatoon machines as they could.

Bummer, I was hoping to get an extra Wii U in a clearance sale, mostly to have a second GamePad. Those things are going to become expensive to replace, even moreso than they already are.
