Earlier this month, multiple sources reported that Wii U production has just about wrapped up, but Nintendo immediately denied the story. A few days later, Nintendo flip-flopped and announced that Wii U production is indeed ending soon in Japan, and that no more Wii U consoles will be shipped to North America for the rest of the fiscal year.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

Before his tragic death in 2010, Takeshi Shudo was one of the driving forces behind the Pokémon anime and the entire Pokémon brand. He was one of the creators of the Pokémon TV series and served as the chief writer for the first few seasons of the show. Shudo used to keep a personal blog, which he would update regularly with his thoughts on the show. Back in 2009, he published a rather depressing entry, which proposed a possible ending for Ash's story: essentially, Shudo wanted to end the show by having Ash wake up from a crazy dream as a senile old man, realizing that the entire Pokémon world had been nothing more than a fantasy.

During the 1990s, the Mortal Kombat franchise was at the peak of its popularity. To cash in on the popularity, Midway and New Line Cinema created the Mortal Kombat movie, which became a big success.

Now, twenty years later, a brand new Mortal Kombat movie is in the works, and it has found its director. Simon McQuiod, who is best known for directing commercials, will be directing the reboot movie. A release date for the movie has not been determined.
