The Switch is the most popular Nintendo console since the Wii, and has hundreds of physical and digital games. Given its success, it is easy to forget the odd improbable glitch: the Wii U.
The Wii U was meant to be the Wii's successor, and potential purchasers were concerned by it when it was released. Instead, it was a standalone console with a 480p touchscreen. Neither third-party nor an embarrassing marketing campaign from Nintendo made the puzzle. It's remarkable, but the console's performance ensures that people don't want to look too bad to see it in comparison to the Switch.

Rango, a 2011 Nickelodeon film, was a bizarre, heartfelt tribute to the Spaghetti westerns of yesteryear, when a pet chameleon must take on the role of a sheriff, and desert creatures filled with for cowboys and townspeople.
While Beans, the chameleon in the stetson, takes on the role of the Wii U, and just looks at him. The Switch has exceeded the level of success that the Wii U only dreamed of forever, to live in the shadow of its predecessor and its successor. It will not be getting the LEGO treatment any time soon.
Nintendo Consoles: 6 Wii U Is The Squidward
The Wii U paved the way for the Switch. Players had the option to play games on the television or on the game pad, thus as long as the console was in charge, they had limited freedom with where they played.

4 Wii U: The Poor Mans Switch
The Nintendo Switch console has a lot of advantages over the Wii U, including increased games and greater portability. One thing that the Wii U does have right now is that it is a cheaper option for some games.
This meme from zeden-725 on Reddit demonstrates this dynamic perfectly. While the Switch has received new ports of Wii U exclusives, some original Wii U releases go for fairly cheap right now. At least they are cheap for the moment, until the Wii U eShop shuts down. Finally, physical copies will be difficult to come by. Some Wii U games are already asking prices.

Super Smash Bros was the first game to allow up to eight players at once, including custom Mii Fighters. Smash 4 also released some new characters, including Ryu from Street Fighter and Pac-Man.
Then, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was built with virtually every Smash character in existence, and then some. It became one of the major selling points of the Switch console. However, some people are still playing Smash 4 on the Wii U today.
