Earlier this year we reported on the downsizing that’s going on for Nintendo hardware and software in the UK. Asda and Morrisons, both prominent UK retailers, have stopped stocking the Wii U completely. Now Tesco, the UK’s largest supermarket chain, has reduced their Nintendo shelf space in some places entirely, while some places maintain the pitiful set up you see above. There are only five slots available for games and of those slots, only one is a Wii U game.
This is being done to make room for the launch of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. If you live in the UK, how does your local Tesco look? Let us know in the comments below.
