First, let's see how many Wii U-First-Party-Games we had per year:
2013: Lego City Undercover, Game & Wario, Pikmin 3, New Super Luigi U, The Wonderful 101, Wii Party U, Wind Waker HD, Wii Fit U, Super Mario 3D World, Mario & Sonic Sochi, Wii Sports Club, Pokemon Rumble U, NES Remix.

2015: Kirby, Mario Party 10, Tipping Stars, Splatoon, Yoshi's Woolly World, Art Academy Atelier, Devil's Third, Super Mario Maker, Mario Tennis, amiibo Festival, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Fatal Frame V.
2016: Twilight Princess HD, Pokken, Star Fox Zero, Star Fox Guard, Mini Mario & Friends, Mario & Sonic Rio, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Paper Mario Color Splash, Zelda, and more unannounced.
Total: 9 + x
As we can see, every year had at least 8 First Party Wii U Games. My question is now: How many Wii U First Party Games do you think we will see in 2017?
I expect around 12. We will most likely see the new Retro game, a new Animal Crossing, a new Pikmin, a new game from EPD Tokyo, Project Giant Robot, a new Metroid, a Pokemon game and a few surprises.
Lego City Undercover, The Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Fatal Frame V and Devil's Third are First-Party-games now?
Didn't know that Nintendo bought TT Games, Platinum Games, Koei Tecmo and Valhalla Game Studios. So Nintendo now produces for all platforms? That's nice of them!
- TT Games = Lego Marvel's Avengers, Lego Star Wars: TFA (PC, PS3, PS4, 360, XBO, Vita)
- Platinum Games = Scalebound (XBO), Nier: Automata (PS4), TMNT (PC, PS3, PS4, 360, XBO), MGR:R (Android)
- Koei Tecmo = Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 (PS4, Vita), Toukiden 2 (PS3, PS4, Vita)
- Valhalla Game Studios = Devil's Third Online (PC)
