British retailer ASDA (owned by Walmart) has announced that they will no longer be selling Wii U consoles, games, or peripherals.
This is not the first time ASDA has said they’d stop stocking the Wii U. They made a similar announcement last year, only to not follow up.
While ASDA has not provided an official reason for the decision, it can be inferred that it is the result of the Wii U’s poor sales in the UK. However, ASDA has also said they would still occasionally stock Wii U games, specifically large first party releases.
The American owned retailer will continue to stock Nintendo 3DS systems and games.
Wii U systems and games will still be available, at discounted price. as they try to clean out their stock. Afterwards, they will no longer be ordering any additional units.
