...a lot of sites are reporting this as fact even though it seems to be more educated rumor/speculations...
Games "journalism" 101. I fully understand that in this industry one often has little more than mere rumor to work with, what with the companies so thoroughly controlling the stream of information, but so many sites reporting rumor and speculation as fact with little mention of true nature is a continuous source of disappointment. Do all the rumor mongering you please, just mark it as such and at least try not to work people up into a frothing frenzy over something that most likely isn't real.

I like more niche journalism sites slightly better then most but yeah the media as a whole is trash.

So Nintendo denies it, so yeah a baseless rumor until otherwise noted That said it's really obvious the Wii U is on it's way out and Paper Mario Color Splash seems to be it's last major exclusive title, and that these statements are largely PR speak

Are you sure about that? I thought the new Zelda will be its last major release. Just like what happened with the GCN and Wii.

VGM out...

I should have specified "exclusive" Wii U release, since yeah BOTW will be Wii U as well

Wii U Production is officially ending in Japan and once again being reported by the media. So it looks like earlier rumors were spot on.

近日生産終了予定 apparently translates to “production is scheduled to end soon.”
