Found on this japanese blog, no confirmation yet.

From the blog:

"Wii U version of Zelda : Breath of the Wild cancelled ! Reason is technical problem on developpement. Decision taken by Top Management.

Amazon, Biccamera等はWiiU版を削除!
There is also massive cancellation of pre-order from Amazon, Biccamera, Yamada Denki... Game no more listed on homepage.

Waiting for official confirmation by Nintendo"

Note: at the time of reading this the game is still "available" on Amazon.co.jp, yet I have no proof about pre-order cancellation.

Not surprising. I'm sure they are struggling to reach 20fps.

Still bad for the players ofc.

Not buying this "rumor". It's too late in the game to have some bizarre technical issue cancel the Wii U version, and Nintendo can't bank on new Switch owners alone to buy the game in the numbers they need.

I can see, like TP for Gamecube, a very limited (or even cancelled) release, but in Japan only.

Its probably not true. The only time that the game was shown on the Switch was on Jimmy Fallon. The rest of the promotional material comes from the Wii U. The game is pretty much done were just waiting for it to be released.

Worst case, they'll put out the Wii U version a few weeks later like they did with Twilight Princess on Gamecube.

That would be an import copy from the west. You need to search by the Japanese name for it (dunno what it is).

If true I'm gonna be very disappointed. I have no plans to buy a switch but if so that would cement my decision to be done with Nintendo.
