Confirmed: Breath of the Wild is Wii U's final first-party game

Jason Clement

Ever since last year's E3, it's been assumed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be the Wii U's final first-party release, but now Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that this is indeed the case in a recent interview with Polygon.


However, though Nintendo won't be making any more new Wii U titles, Reggie also said that Nintendo will still be supporting the online components for the foreseeable future and that the ongoing activity for both Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon is "significant."


It's also worth noting that eShop releases will still continue from indie developers and possibly some smaller third parties, though it's unknown whether new Virtual Console games will be released on Wii U after the launch of Nintendo Switch.


Also in question is the future of the game known as Project Giant Robot, which was one of two final games (alongside Breath of the Wild) to appear on the most recent release forecast for Wii U in Nintendo's investor reports. Whether the game was outright cancelled or changed in concept, we'll have to wait and see.


In the meantime, Nintendo's final first party title for the Wii U -- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild -- will release on March 3.
