Surely Nintendo has more ideas up their sleeves other than Mario and Zelda.
See, TC, most people swear they buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo games. A quick look at the sales suggests this is incorrect.
When people say they buy Nintendo consolesfor first party games they do mean themselves, no everyone.
Though exaggerated number for Zelda and Mario. That would be more for Megaman.

How dare Nintendo use successful franchises and characters that they developed, to make money. Just because Sony doesn't have memorable franchises, Nintendo should be handicapped by only being able to use new ips.
So many excellent business minds here, why have governments not employed you to improve the economy is beyond me.
Fanboys are a cancer to gaming but Sony fanboys are a particularly aggressive and repulsive form.

No one complained about metroid prime cause while it was now in 3D is still felt like a metroid game where as some of nintendo's older IPs from the NES era wouldnt work really well today. Kid Icarus was a huge risk on nintendo's end and had it bombed i think it would have scared nintendo away from trying to revive older franchises but like i said i dont see something like Ice climbers working out well in todays gaming world.
Though i will say this i really want nintendo to make a battalion wars 3 :)

Come on, I mean seriously, Do they listen to the people complaining about lack of new original IPs at all? Even Miyamoto said he had ideas. Why not use them? Why not "innovate" and shw the world your creations?
Mario galaxy, skyward sword, Mario sunshine, starfox adventures and Mario 64 could've all been reskined as entirely different games and people would consider them new IPS. The fact of the matter is they don't need them. Nintendo set up their franchises in a way where people are willing to accept and in fact encourage new art styles and gameplay mechanics in their sequels so new IPs become redundant.
PS+ has paid it's self for me. So from here on out I will refer to any new games as free.

They've had a ton of new IPs. Just because they don't interest you doesn't mean your topic is valid. Nintendo puts out more quality 1st party games per year than Sony or MS, but because they don't involve blood and guns, the masses overlook them intentionally.
We can use 3rd party games as proof :
Rayman Origins sold horribly against MW3 was it? It was even on more systems.
Now, wait until Rayman Legends or Sly 4 releases and compare them to whatever shooter released near them.
