Two years of poor sales have led to an equilibrium where the only reason to buy a Wii U is to play Nintendo’s line-up of first-party releases. Not counting Mario Kart 7, which came out for the handheld Nintendo 3DS in 2011, it took Nintendo six years to release Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U.That would be fine if Nintendo were able to crank out its titles like entries in the Call of Duty franchise, producing games to keep bringing fans back for more. While those games were best sellers on their respective consoles, that’s a between releases — a kid who got Mario Kart Wii for her tenth birthday could drive an actual car by the time she got her hands on its sequel.
