Even though, the Wii U was not as big in terms of sales in comparison to other Nintendo based consoles the recent situation regarding regarding the Nintendo Switch and Gamevice could lead to a potential return for this game system. What is interesting about the Wii U is that the console was discounted in late January prior to the release of the Nintendo Switch in early March of this year. While the Nintendo Switch has been doing great in terms of worldwide sales the cease and desist order from Gamevice could potentially ban the sales of the game system altogether.
While there have long term projects and plans for new video games such as Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Mania, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and other titles going into 2018 many are questioning the future of the Switch console. However, if the Nintendo Switch becomes banned due to the issues with Gamevice then the value of could increase on places such as eBay and Amazon. Also, Nintendo would have the option of bring back the Wii-U for a cheaper price in comparison to what it was worth when it was first released back in late 2012. But if Nintendo is successful in resolving their dispute with Gamevice then the Switch console can possibly go one to be one of the best selling video game consoles of 2017-2018.
