Wii U

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu will no longer track the sales of the Wii U in Japan, finally allowing the console to serenely drift off into the loving embrace of Nintendo's past systems.

It comes as no surprise (the console was often generating weekly sales of between 10 and 20 units in recent weeks) but Famitsu was the last major player in Japan still reporting on the figures. The other largest sales figure tracker, Media Create, stopped reporting on Wii U figures last year, so it's unlikely that we'll see much in the way of Wii U statistics going forward.

As it stands, the Wii U has reportedly sold 3,303,541 units in Japan (for comparison's sake, the Switch has already sold over 5 million in the country despite only being on the market for 19 months). While sales will continue to trickle in over the following months, this will likely be the most accurate figure we'll have for a while until Nintendo releases official sales reports in the future.

We'll miss you, Wii U.
