It seems retailer faith in the Wii U may be being to dip, as the UK superstore Asda today announced that they will no longer be stocking the Wii U console or its games in its stores across the UK.
Removing all stock from its stores, the retail giant did however mention to Eurogamer that it will continue to stock the console on its online store, with a spokesperson from the company giving the following statement:
“Asda continues to offer customers a selection of Wii U games and accessories through Asda Direct, but these ranges are currently not on offer in Asda shops.”
In case you live outside the UK, Asda is one of the biggest superstores in the UK, owned by Walmart they have probably just made the decision that could lead to a major fall in sales for the Wii U in the UK.
At the moment however, there’s not much information as to why the removed the console and games from their stores, so we can only presume it was due to a lack of sales.
