Back in E3 2014, Nintendo showed off a multitude of (then) upcoming Wii U titles, and one of them was the mysterious Project Giant Robot. The game never had an official title, and it was only shown during E3 2014. Project Giant Robot was demoed to the media by Shigeru Miyamoto, which used the Wii U GamePad to control the gigantic robot and destroy the city. In Nintendo’s latest Earnings Report, though, Project Giant Robot was nowhere to be found on the list of upcoming games, despite being on the list during Nintendo’s last Q3 Earnings Report.
When Polygon asked about the cancellation of Project Giant Robot, Nintendo responded honestly.
“We made this decision after considering our overall product and development strategy.”
Nintendo is definitely ready to leave Wii U behind as it looks forward to Nintendo Switch’s launch on March 3rd.
