Can Nintendo really shoulder the entire Wii U library?

Its hard to imagine that they will shoulder the entire burden of releasing games, but can they pull it off? They did with 3DS.

I'm sure they won't have to they'll get a few 3rd parties with them. And they will have more then the ones announced this far, So far announced Smash Bros, Mario kart, Bayonneta 2, X, Donkey Kong, I'm sure we can expect a few more from big N and a few 3rd parties.

And the N64, and the Gamecube, and the Wii.

If Nintendo can get its act together and release at least one game each month or every two months then I think that will help. But of course it is a huge undertaking and they won't be able to fill in every single genre.

But, of course, knowing Nintendo they really like to take their time with the game releases so I can't really see that happening. There will always be demand for Nintendo games. But I think that the longer wait between each new release is what is hurting them as that is both lost revenue and possibly lost consumers on their end.

I'd say yes. They've already started releasing games at a rapid pace. Wii Party U, Wii Fit U, and Wii Sports Club were about 2 weeks apart. Before that you had Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, NSL U, and Warioware which all came out in a 3 month time span. In a few weeks we'll have SMB3dWorld. Their pacing with releases is pretty quick right now.

Given that we can build a premature case for the Wii U being a repeat of the N64 than the Gamecube, they'd better. And as someone who enjoyed the more balanced experience of the Gamecube (and Wii, for that matter, at least the way I played), I really hate saying that.

Microsoft has that problem, Sony doesn't; say what you will about its first party games, but Sony legitimately has stuff you don't get anywhere else. Microsoft, if and when the Xbone can shrug off the 360's legacy, has Halo and brand loyalty. The other two do to, it's been one of Nintendo's cornerstones since the N64, but not around a single series.

We're talking game library, though, not sales, in which case the 3DS and to a lesser extent the Wii (For Monster Hunter 3, if nothing else) don't qualify, there are third-party reasons to buy both. Gamecube and N64 did not have nearly enough to claim that luxury for most people, aside perhaps those that bought Cubes for RE4 on release.

I think they can. 90% of the software I'm interested in is Nintendo-developed anyway.
