Sounds to me as if they are planning to ditch the wii u... in which case... I rather not spell the catastrophe that will be, but it may be their only option.
They can say goodbye to their credibility and probably their role as a hw maker. It may be the best time to sell my Wii U now

Well I think Zelda U, Yarn Yoshi, Bayonetta 2, Animal Crossing U, Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros. U, Mario Party U, Hyrule Warriors, SMT x Fire Emblem, etc. are all still coming to Wii U, which should take them through much of 2015 at least. 

So I wouldn't throw out the console just yet.

My guess would be that games that Nintendo was thinking about greenlighting for the Wii U for 2016 and beyond however are quietly being pulled though. 

I agree and if anything, it's more likely that they will direct resources into getting games out sooner than planned in order to maintain some sort of relevance for the Wii U. At worst, we have another gamecube scenario (which had great games despite sales)

I don't think they're increasing resources per se, but all these games are probably well into development already. They're not just going to cancel them. Projects that are trying to get greenlit now for the Wii U though Nintendo is probably being far more conservative with though ie: if a Metroid U isn't in development already, I could see Nintendo saying "nope" to that. 

I get the sense they don't want to sink any more money into the Wii U than they absolutely have to.
