It's not that bad really.  There are quite a few worthwhile games coming out this year starting with Splatoon which has already reached.  I remember times back when I was Nintendo only where it seemed like nothing worthwhile was released for a year but i'm also pretty picky.  Wii had lots of games but often there were major gaps with nothing truely worth playing imo.  Off the top of my head..  Splatoon, Star Fox, Devil's Third, Yoshi, Fatal Frame, Xenoblade, Kirby, and Mario Tennis...  not a bad year of wiiu games which i would actually want to play.
