I think its time for them to focus on other IPs and give the good old Nintendo IPs like mario a break

Agreed! Those are 2 of my most hoped Wii U exclusives. I'd like to see Nintendo continue working with Mistwalker, maybe a new The Last Story or something original again.

I am wicked hyped for Bayonetta 2 but I found Xenoblade Chronicles to be so boring that I have zero interest in X.

This is the worst possible time for Nintendo to give their established franchises a break. They need those Mario games now more than ever.

Once Nintendo gets Mario Kart, 3D Mario, and the other First Party games they will then experiment with other or new franchises like what they did with the 3DS. They just need to grow their install base exponentially before they take more risks.

I'd rather see some older franchise revivals and new IPs.

Giving Mario a break is a stupid thing to say. The games are usually pretty good and if you really don't like them ignore them no one is forcing you to play them

And with Nintendo funding X, Bayo 2, Wonderful 101, SMT x FE and publishing/helping with Lego City, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Spirit Camera/Fatal Frame, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge I think they got your message

They already release a  Mario game but it hasn't helped much with the sales of the Wii

New Super Mario Bros. U might have been responsible for quite a few Wii U purchases around the time of the launch window. It's hard to say either way, though. It wasn't my reason for getting the console but I've enjoyed the game a lot.

Well, it is the top Wii-U game sold correct?

^I assume so, though I haven't looked at any official sales data. According to VGChartz (I have no idea if this site's information is accurate or anywhere near accurate) it has sold almost 900K in North America, which seems pretty good.

I would not trust that site completely as its been said to be unreliable by many I believe the NPD would be a more reliable source.

Although selling a bit over 2 million the Wii U has been selling poorly lately Mario doesn't seem to be enought nowadays to convince more people to buy it

No, a single Mario game wasn't enough to convince people to buy it. Another 3D Mario platformer, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, and Donkey Kong will probably do the trick.

We need to put our money where our mouths are. If this game sells great, more of the same should come along.

This pretty much what it comes down to. If the likes of Bayonetta 2 and X are what you want to see more of, you better hope that there proves to be a large enough of a market for these games to be viable. It honestly makes no sense for Nintendo to develop or go after games that do little to nothing to improve the company's bottom line, so it really all hinges on how well these games are going to sell and how consistently they can sell moving forward. There's a reason why Nintendo doesn't do this sort of thing all the time and why third party publishers continue to show shaky support on Nintendo platforms. At the end of the day, it boils down to simple numbers.

All being said, anyone who thinks that Nintendo's going to suddenly put Mario and Co. on the shelf for the sake of developing/getting more "Xs" and "Bayonettas" are kidding themselves. Nintendo needs the mass market appeal that comes with its tried and true franchises more than anything else, and if those universally appealing games aren't leading the way, the upside of Nintendo's systems typically isn't great enough to get much support elsewhere. So if anything, you better hope Nintendo can somehow find a way to make the Wii U much more attractive to a much larger audience. Otherwise, it's not going to matter as to what Nintendo tries to focus its resources on.

 I was talking about whether NSMBU's 2.15 million was bad or not. It isn't bad at all. Over 70% of Wii U owners have it. I thought you were saying that Mario Bros U hadn't sold well at a bit over 2 million. I made this mistake because you were wrong about the Wii U's hardware sales which aren't " a bit over 2 million" they are about 3.5 million. That's the reason I got confused. Mario is still pretty good at selling the console as it clearly influenced 2.15 million people to pick up the device.

After paying retailers a $12 fee Nintendo probably makes $40-$45 off each copy of NSMBU which has likely netted them close to $100 million for a launch game that likely cost less than $20 million to make. That means the game is super successful.

And when you take into considering hardware sales, its fairly precedent for a new piece of hardware to only have 3-5 million sales after the first six months on the market. Heck, the Wii U is only 200k behind the PS3 in the same time frame in America and actually on par with the PS3's first six month sales in Japan. I'd say getting 2.15 million sales out of any launch title in 6 months is amazing.
