At the 2018 GeekWire Summit in Seattle earlier today, Reggie Fils-Aime stopped by. The Nintendo of America president addressed the Wii U’s failures, but also spoke about how it eventually paved the way for Switch.

Speaking about the Wii U, Reggie stated:

Limited Run Games has been offering physical versions of Switch games for the past several months. But for a one-time release, the company is going back to the previous generation of Nintendo hardware.

Limited Run’s Josh Fairhurst has teased a Wii U game, though hasn’t indicated what it will be. Unfortunately, it sounds like securing the release wasn’t easy as it took a year as well as lost money. Fairhurst also doesn’t anticipate Limited Run making a profit.

Fairhurst wrote on Twitter:
