Video Games Encyclopedia by Gamepressure.com

Wii U is the 8th generation console from Nintendo and a successor to Wii. It was released almost all around the world in November 2012. Wii U had many new features (with GamePad controller on the top of the list) and significantly better performance, but it didn’t manage to repeat the big success of its predecessor; actually, it wasn’t even close. That’s why less than 3 years after the release of Wii U the world began to spread rumors about the console’s successor, initially codenamed NX.
