It looks like Super Smash Bros U and Mario Kart 8 could both be arriving this coming Spring. Bernd Fakesch, Nintendo’s German General Manager, speaking with the German newspaper Neckar-Chronik, said (roughly translated thanks to Neogaf and Google Translate) that both Super Smash Bros U and Mario Kart 8 are coming to the Wii U in Spring.
This move could be the kick in the pants that the Wii U needs, as the console has obviously had a sluggish year. This would not be an all together unheard of move for Nintendo either, as Mario Kart Wii and Smash Bros Brawl came out a month apart in Spring 2008. They may be looking to capture that same lightning in a bottle one more time. While no date was given for the 3DS version of Smash, it is probably safe to assume that it will release in tandem with the Wii U version.
