Super Mario Odyssey: Is it Coming to Wii U?


The launch of Super Mario Odyssey marks the arrival of yet another iconic Nintendo franchise to Switch’s excellent year-one library. Standing alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, two of Nintendo’s best-known characters have now appeared in two critically acclaimed new games on the system. But whereas the launch of Breath of the Wild coincided with the console’s launch line-up, Odyssey hits store shelves well into its first year. Yet there are still plenty of Nintendo fans that haven’t been able to get their hands on a Switch due to its scarce availability, and those individuals will surely want to know whether Super Mario Odyssey is coming to the Wii U console, as did Breath of the Wild.

Unfortunately, Nintendo has announced no plans to do so. Super Mario Odyssey launches as a Switch exclusive, only available on the company’s latest hardware. If you’re a Mario fan, either on the fence about purchasing a Switch or have not been able to find one, we’re sorry to tell you that the console is necessary to play the game.

That is all the information we have about whether Super Mario Odyssey is coming to the Wii U console. For more useful information and guides on the game, check out our wiki page.
