They easily have enough games to support it. There are still so many IPs they haven't done anything with on the Wii U, and that's not even counting new things we'll be getting.

If you're talking a Fusion platform where all their teams can effectively work on one platform, then yes.

If you're talking the current setup of a separate handheld and home console -- then no.

Honestly I don't think they even have enough for more than 4 years of solid support. Both the GameCube and Wii fizzled out in terms of software support after year 4.



What I want from Nintendo: able to play 3DS/handheld games on the console, and with a monthly/yearly subscription fee, give us access to the full VC library.

You'll probably get that next cycle, but not with the subscription fee (though perhaps Nintendo should consider it). 



of course they have

I agree with this

Also, If I recall correctly, the Super Nintendo in 1996, its fifth year (N64 was released for Christmas of that year) only had Donkey Kong Country 3 made by Rare, Super Mario RPG made by Square, and Kirby Super Star made by Hal.

So, Nintendo itself has always had a hard time supporting its console in its fifth year. And with the SNES it wasnt so bad because it had third party games, Capcom released Mega Man X3, Final Fight 3 and Street Fighter Alpha 2 on SNES that year.

 

I am pretty sure the new console will be released in the fifth year, 2017, and that year we may get only 2 or 3 new Wii U games + some gamecube remasters.
