There are only three scenarios I can see this Mario Kart Arcade hitting Wii U.
1. Mario Kart U is slated for holiday 2014, and Mario Kart Arcade is reduced-price and eshop only, coming out mid this year.
2. Mario Kart Arcade comes as a hidden unlockable/bonus with Mario Kart U.
3. Mario Kart U comes out this holiday, and Mario Kart Arcade comes out as DLC/eshop only 6 months or more late.
I really don't think this hitting in the summer and Mario Kart U hitting in the holiday is a good idea. We all know that NSMBU and NSMB2 didn't help each other, and there is no use causing confusion and brand fatigue on one of their top tier franchises.
Likewise, I think it is a rather poor idea to put Monster Hunter 3G on 3DS and WiiU at the same time. The sales will cannibalize each other and it's a niche franchise as is.
