5 years since the #WiiU first launched into a pretty turbulent period in #Nintendo's console lifecycle. For me though, this device got me back into console and handheld gaming (and was the impetus for posting on Instagram). After buying a 3DS as well, the Wii U also sparked my desire for a way to play the same game in front of the TV, in a completely different room, or maybe even away from home altogether... little did I know that Nintendo would deliver that wish so soon in the #NintendoSwitch.
So, although the Wii U sits powered-down and idle, it still sits alongside my #Switch and #PS4Pro as a reminder of the significance it played in my reinvigorated love for console gaming. It may not have had the biggest or greatest library at times - but it was a highly undervalued device with some absolutely standout titles.
