We gather here today to mourn the loss of the Nintendo Wii U. Throughout its difficult life it has faced countless adversities. We will never forget the memorable games that it has brought to us and we will always cherish its unique experiences. Brothers and sisters, may we bow our heads in silence to pay respects to the fallen console... :(
