Thanks for your reply.
I'm a ps4 player, but this is an upgrade for my sons wii for his birthday.
We have currently racked up several hundred hours on mario kart for the wii, so figured that mario kart 8 was a logical step.
Seemingly the success of Mario Kart 8 has boosted Wii U sales and popularity, so there may be life in the old dog yet?

Absolutely not, a snowball has a better chance of winning a handicap match with hell & a smelting furnace than the Wii U has of recovering - it's not going to happen. Mario Kart 8 did slightly boost sales

Whilst you may or may not be right (my crystal ball is malfunctioning at the moment ), sales were up 666%, in the UK, with the release of Mario Kart, it boils down to whether there are the games you want on a specific console.
The OP wants Mario Kart 8 and the only way of getting that is by buying a Wii U, there is also a strong lineup of games coming that people who have had Nintendo before will probably want to play. And many great games via the Wii U shop from small independent publishers.
At the end of the day it doesn't bother me if a console is still supported if it has the games I want on it, I still get my Megadrive and N64 out to play games on and they haven't had any support for many many years.
