I'd say we'll get a new Zelda in 2015. In 2014 we'll be lucky to get Super Smash Bros or that new Mario they talked about. If Pikmin 3 does eventually come out (I'm starting to doubt it ever will) I'd hazard a guess that it's the only real Nintendo IP to come out in 2013 (I'm not counting Wind Waker since it's a remake). I would love nothing more than Nintendo to prove me wrong, and to do so viscously, but I don't think they will.
By that time, Sony and MS will be out with their new stuff and will most likely blow whatever Nintendo has out of the water. They had a full year headstart and they botched it. I don't think the system will recover especially since it doesn't look like they have much of a plan for the next 6 months to grab onto people that haven't jumped yet. Those will most likely just wait for the nextXbox and PS4, but of which are building up quite the momentum at the moment
