Actually, the Gameboy Color only gets to a grand total of 581 games

There are many more games releasing than did 30 years ago. For instance, the Sega Master System only got up to 381 games - and that's with games later developed/ported in Brazil when the console was phased out everywhere else already. The NES, despite it's over 10 year long career, barely breaks the 700 with 714 and thus still less than the Wii U. The number of releases increased a lot later on, for instance both Megadrive (Genesis for Americans) and the SNES get over 1000 games each.

The Wikipedia games lists tend to be quite inaccurate, best to use the actual companies stores if possible. Here from Nintendo

Nintendo DS - 1830
Nintendo Wii - 1755
Nintendo 3DS - 1256
Nintendo Switch - 1117
Nintendo WiiU - 1041

So yeah it's already surpassed WiiU and should surpass 3DS in just a couple of months.

I think a lot of this comes down to the Switch being easily their most friendly and appealing console for Indie Developers.

Yeah, Wikipedia as source could be kinda incomplete especially for something older like Wii.

 

On the other hand, back in the Wii-days download-games were new and only few existed. I'm pretty sure Switch already has massively more download-only games than Wii ever had. That games can inflate the number and also reach the number of physical releases.
