Not necessarily true. Resident Evil Revelations and Kingdom Hearts were moderate successes on the 3DS and Muramasa: The Demon Blade on Wii sold more in the US than in any other region, including its nation of origin. If you go even further back, Resident Evil 4 on the gamecube was a pretty damn successful game.

Yeah, unfortunately with newer Nintendo hardware, quality 3rd part software goes unnoticed. But look at ZombiU; Ubisoft said they were satisfied with how it sold and the game had a fairly successful attachment rate. So it goes to show that there can be exceptions.

Lets hope so. The more systems the merrier, just means the game has a higher chance to sell better.

"and sadly it will bomb, like everything else other than nintendo games on the system"

As long as they make awesome games for it, then I will use my cash to change that fact.

Nintendo are absolute scum to 3rd party developers...Always have been..I mean Google what EA had to do to break into the Japanese dominated home console market, back in the 16 bit days. Nintendo made it virtually impossible for 3rd party developers to get development kits to make games for Nintendo's systems, & 3rd party developers outside of Japan got screwed even worse. So, some people in Sega, hinted to Trip Hawkins & gang, that it would be easier if they built there own actual Genesis/MD inhouse, & then they could analyze the system, as they had stripped the original Sega made Genesis/MD & made there own version of it, that meant they had built a development kit/pseudo Genesis, all in one, so then, instead of paying massive royalties to Sega & a HUGE cost for a development kit, & Sega's proprietry cartridges, EA developed there own proprietry cartridges, as people may recall EA's own game cartridges ALL had the yellow spine part on there Genesis/MD cartridges.
So, everyone that hates on EA, needs to research how hard and full on dedicated these poor [email protected] had to work, to build EA up into the status of one of the biggest publishers today. And yes, like every big corporation, they do screw up some series, (Medal Of Honor, Dead Space & no sequel for Mirrors Edge come to mind), BUT, EA also release some groundbreaking, awesome series each generation & have also built some of there sporting franchises into THE BEST, forcing companies like Sony to concede & not even bother releasing there usual sport franchises. So, EA are responsible for single handedly opening up & revolutionizing 3rd party relationships with one of the Japanese console giants, in Sega, & even though Nintendo were still A-holes to ALL 3rd party developers, & renowned for charging them an arm & a leg for the "privilege" to make games on there notoriously hard to develop for systems, & thus NEVER giving them a hint, let alone development software or support, Nintendo did eventually make concessions, as they saw the success EA were having with HUGE U.S. games like Madden, NHL & the like. EA built as stable of THE HIGHEST quality console software on Genesis/MD, & Nintendo NEEDED these titles for the U.S. market. So, now EA had Nintendo interested in them, as opposed to they way they still treated 3rd party developers that were not EA.
