Yeah, can't disgree with this. Nintendo can't be trusted with release dates, so dont hold your breath over the big games. They did the same with the Wii, Mario Galaxy was due to be a launch title but came out a year later.
My reason for mentioning it is that in 2011 Nintendo "pulled a WiiU" by saying "don't worry we have Luigi's Mansion, Animal X'ing etc on the way". Almost two full years later neither is actually out. My point being, I honestly think most of the WiiU games announced this week won't be available in Europe until late 2014, maybe 2015.
It's OK front loading your line ups if there's lots of software planned in the interim but with 3DS that hasn't been the case. With the massive lack of 3rd party multiplatform support the WiiU is facing, yet again Nintendo are totally reliant on their own first party studios - and their development times are leaving huge gaps in the release schedules.
