If the E3 Digital Event was an accurate representation of the next 8 to 10 months, maybe. But it isn't. Star Fox, Super Mario Maker, Yoshi's Wooly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Fatal Frame V, Devil's Third, Genei Ibunroku #FE, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, Mario and Sonic at the Rio Olympics, FAST Racing Neo, all these are targeting that window alongside the (admittedly phoned-in but also free) Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival. That's eleven exclusives. There's also Project Treasure, but that release date is uncertain. Zelda comes next year. As it stands, the Wii U's near future is quite strong.
And it's pretty common for PR to talk trash and try to look big when their backs are against the wall. It's sickish at times, but not something that really means much or plays into the quality of the platform.
