Wii U

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.
