Iwata: More Unannounced Third Party Titles Will Come

"We hope to revitalize the platform with our strong first party lineup"
Nintendo has had a bit of a problem getting many third party developers to create content for the Wii U as the install base is currently relatively low.
Yesterday, Reggie Fils-Aime said Nintendo plans to boost the amount of consoles in the wild by releasing more great first party content. He believes the first party software will lead to more units being sold and therefore more opportunity for third party developers.
This stance was reiterated in the recent E3 analyst meeting, where Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said the following:
We hope to revitalize the platform with our strong first-party lineup, and then an enriched third-party software lineup will follow.
While showing off the company's third party line ups Iwata revealed there are some titles that are yet to be announced:
It is not my position to mention which titles each third-party developer will release in the future. However, more unannounced titles will come.
Naturally, these titles will be announced in the future by the relevant third parties and it's good to know there are more titles lined up.
