Wii U

The Wii was an incredibly successful game console, a successor was natural. The Wii U was the follow-up that attempted to bridge the gap between home consoles and handheld gaming. The device was generally considered a failure for various reasons but it lives on as being a very unusual moment in the history of game consoles.

The Wii U was the first step in Nintendo’s efforts to make a handheld and a home console all in one. They were successful in achieving this but failed in marketing. Attempting to jump to the next console generation with a highly underpowered device proved unpopular with gamers and developers. The result was a lack of support from publishers, which resulted in many gamers being turned away.

The Wii U had some great games released for it, most if not all of which have since been ported to the Nintendo Switch. The lack of exclusive games left to play and the shutting down of online features has let the Wii U fall into the world of collector’s items.
Even with the limited library, there were some great games released for the Wii U. Below you will find a collection of game guides, tutorials and any other posts that are based around the Wii U and the games that are released for it.
