The Wii U wasn’t Nintendo’s best attempt at bat. Its baffling design and confusing marketing campaigns left Nintendo loyalists – and the Wii’s more casual audience – feeling alienated.

Originally released in 2012 – long after the Xbox 360 and PS3, and just a year after the Xbox One and PS4 – the Wii U failed to captivate a sizable consumer base. A shame considering it was the first Nintendo console to support HD resolution.
