Modern visuals and game quality are not mutually exclusive. The NES, SNES, N64 and Gamecube had both. Weak hardware constricts game development in more ways than visuals. There is nothing special about Nintendo that gives them a free pass to take the lazy route. Judging by the anemic WiiU sales the market seems to agree.

You can have modern visuals with the Wii U, there are already several examples of that and there is no evidence to support what you're claiming, if anything the success of the Wii points to the opposite. The Wii U is a victim of bad marketing a poorly realized controller and too similar naming more than it is of 'anemic' hardware. The hardware is perfectly competent for building HD games of the kind that Nintendo specializes in and that's what people buy Nintendo systems for. Third party matters but most will scale down to meet a successful platform, the Wii U simply needs more first party software and a base, then you will see third parties come back.

When your dev tools are complete shit, and your hardware specs are 6 years outdated, 3rd party publishers tend to want nothing to do with you. Nintendo did this to themselves. Now obviously I can only speak for myself but to me the GC sucked, the Wii sucked and the WiiU sucks as well, relying on gimmick controllers and at this point tired franchises is not the way to lead the pack.

They may have far more money than Sega did after all their hardware mistakes, but fact of the matter is the WiiU is disappointing in sales and quality titles that aren't Nintendo titles. That may be fine for Big N fanboys but to the rest of us it's pretty much failboat.
