The Wii U is powered by an eMMC flash memory chip from Toshiba and Samsung, and it has been more than a decade since the first units went on sale.

Generally speaking, the life of eMMC chips is about 5 years, especially if the equipment is not used for a long time, it is easy to fail and cannot be used.

In fact,Wii U users reported similar glitches as far back as 2015, but the failure rate has increased significantly recently.

The Wii U has been out of service for years, and the online store will no longer support buying games, new content and in-app purchases on March 28.

I don't know if Nintendo will provide a solution for the bricked Wii U, or just leave it at that.

Wii U was released on June 7, 2011 and went on sale on December 8, 2012. It has sold more than 14 million units in three years. It was named as one of the top 10 technology products of 2012 by Time Magazine and the best video game console of 2014 by Forbes.
