Nintendo denies Cube axing

Global production is still going.

Nintendo UK has confirmed to Eurogamer this morning that it hasn't stopped production of GameCube hardware and software, and that globally it still supports the console.

"I can confirm that globally, Nintendo is still continuing production of GameCube hardware and GameCube software," a spokesperson for Nintendo UK told us.

The game-giant was speaking in the aftermath of recent comments made by Nintendo America boss Perrin Kaplan, who said the company wasn't producing any more GameCube units or first party games for the platform.

It's good news to us, then, but we can't hold off the ominous feeling that the purple box will be outed probably sooner rather than later.
