don't worry. You won't be seeing another New Super Mario Bros game until the next handheld and home console systems arrive, I'm certain of that. The New Super Mario Bros games are just a once every console and handheld generation thing just like the likes of Mario Kart and Smash Bros. They just want to give the Wii U a sales boost knowing how popular it is.
I will find it quite hypocritical if in like 6 or 7 years time another New Super Mario Bros game comes along and people start whining again that Nintendo is milking it and that it is Nintendo's Call of duty or something. Because that just wouldn't make sense.
Anyway, I think the games are pretty fun for a while so if I get the Wii U someday and there is nothing much released at the time. I'll pick it up.
