Kind of doubt it. The power gap has set up a situation like last gen: the Nintendo system will get ports as long as the previous gen's systems get ports (well, that's kind of already fell off with the U) and the difference in power between the Nintendo platform and the other current gen systems will keep the multiplats from appearing on the U. It's going to come down again to whether or not Nintendo customers will buy enough third party games on a console to justify putting one on the platform, and that's historically not been great.

Third parties have been away from Nintendo for a long time now. At best we'll get what Kromlech posted (and then the 3rd parties will complain that their stuff doesn't sell).

Third parties will soon come crawling back to Nintendo begging for forgiveness. Kart and Smash will ensure this.

Do people have some bias towards exclusives? Exclusives are possibly the best option 3rd parties have for the Wii U right now.

I have no problem with 3 party Wii U exclusives actually I welcome but the problem comes from what exclusives the Wii U gets. I have a feeling that a well made GTA, Batman Arkham, Call of Duty, or even Assassin's Creed Wii U exclusive would sell well. But what Wii U gets as exclusive is Wonderful 101 or Zombie quality asside no matter what people say they want to play what they know. So even if they were on lets say 360 I wouldn't expect those games to have done much better anyway. I am pretty sure they sold between 500 to 800k which really isn't that bad.

Maybe Japanese developers. Western ones, other than shovel ware? Not a chance. Look at how they treat the 3DS. Nintendo has many problems of its own making, reasons enough for developers not to bother, but quite a lot secretly just don't want to release stuff on Nintendo, even when those reasons are removed. 3DS has the numbers, is cheap to make games for, almost guarantees making some money. Western devs still just don't care. The 3DS is not the latest in whatever max technology is out and most western developers only want to make the latest shiny and pretty big budget game, even if they lose money (usually on a game that sells enough, but cost so much they barely make anything. They'd rather go bankrupt making a big budget "shiny 'n' pretty" and get gobbled up by one of the big devs than make a 3DS game.
