A game like Mario Tennis is not expected to push hardware, MHW is. Yet, a system without it, still outsold it. Without "big" games you could say. There is your answer.

Mario Tennis is the biggest Nintendo release in almost a year (until Super Mario Party in early October). How is it not expected to push hardware? Did Nintendo give up?

Nintendo had a strategy of releasing a bunch of small-medium tier titles from Jan-Oct this year which seems to have done a good job of keeping steady/consistent sales. 

Jan-Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

Feb-Bayonetta 1+2

March-Kirby: Star Allies/Hyrule Warriors DX

April-Labo Variety/Labo Robot

May-DKC: Tropical Freeze

June-Sushi Striker/Mario Tennis Aces

July-Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Sept-Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna

Oct-Super Mario Party
