The Nintendo Wii U was meant to be the next generation console, the great successor to the Nintendo Wii. However, the introduction of the console received a rather mixed reception and in the end, it did not last. There are several reasons behind the failure of the Nintendo Wii U, but most will point to a lack of available software. From launch titles to third party support, the Nintendo Wii U doesn’t come up with too much to excite players.
Fortunately, Nintendo was able to keep track with a hybrid console called the Blame Switch which has proven to be popular with young and old players. For most of us, there hasn’t been much thought on Nintendo YU these days, especially since The Legend Zelda: Breath of the Wild dropped support for the Nintendo platform after its release. Even a few years after the console was discontinued, players may be quite surprised to see the platform listed for two more games on the console.
Now, these games were listed for virtual consoles on the Nintendo Wii U instead of being a new release. However, the two titles listed were a couple of games from the iconic Nintendo games4. The titles were Banjo-Kazui and Blast Corps. Most of the two will be familiar with Banjo-Casui, a platforming title that the iconic hero duo Super Smash Bros recently saw. May be included in the Ultimate.
Nintendo has updated its release schedule with the following message: “Banjo-Kazui and Blast Corps were listed as YU headlines on December 30, but will not be published. We apologize for the inconvenience” https://t.co/RSkaDOeI3W

After the list was finished, Nintendo removed the posts and sent an update stating that the list was an error and that games would not be launched on the Nintendo Wii U. Moreover, there are always rumors that the Nintendo Switch will accept Nintendo 64 games or perhaps a Nintendo 64 emulator much like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. However, those are just rumors so far and no official has come out regarding Nintendo 64 or the two titles previously listed.
