Was the SNES Classic a bigger attraction than the Wii-U during the 10’s decade?

Aside from the Switch sone of the most popular game systems that we have seen from Nintendo this decade includes the SNES Classic along with the Wii-U. While many people would argue that the SNES Classic was more popular than the Wii-U before and after its release there is no question that it definitely did not sell quite as much. While the SNES Classic managed to reach at least 5 million units worldwide in sales the Wii-U reached over 9 million. Its possible that the SNES Classic could have eventually surpassed the amount that the Wii-U has sold worldwide within four years if Nintendo had decided to continue the production of the retro mini 16-bit console.

While the Wii-U was a console that fell well below Nintendo’s expectations in relation to sales the SNES Classic exceeded the company’s expectations in roughly over a year. While the Wii-U has incredible games such as Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo Land, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Bayonetta 2 and others that were big during the 10’s decade the 16-bit classics from the 90’s were almost just as popular on the SNES between late 2017 and the present. In terms of which console was a bigger attraction during the 10’s decade is debatable especially since more people are focusing the Nintendo Switch right now.
