Will the next Smash game make or break Wii U?

I believe the Wii U's success hinges on the success of Smash U. If a new Super Smash Bros. can't move units, I don't know what else will. Brawl was my primary motivation for picking up a Wii at the time tbh. Perhaps a new Zelda potentially but Smash Bros. seems to be the most effective system seller.

It'll certainly increase sales and right now, with the lack of a solid library, you just might be right. Brawl was a huge success for the Wii. I learned some of my friends who don't even play video games picked it up and play. I'm hoping the new Smash Bros will draw out those same types of people and encourage them to pick up a Wii U. Nintendo has huge potential with this and I'm sure they know it, so they probably don't intend to screw up.

Smash has always been a system seller, there's no way the Wii U won't sell with it.

That said, the fact that it's also coming for the 3DS will probably make it more difficult to move units. And I'm honestly afraid of the 3DS version holding back the Wii U

I still need more info to know who that's gonna work. I know that there will be exclusive stages on each title. Hopefully the character roster stays the same in both, and we've also been told that you can exchange player data between the two. To think that would be a reason to get them both on both platforms. Then again think of all the money one would need to have all four pieces :L

^I remember them saying the roster would stay the same on both.

Think it'll definitely increase sales, but Mario Kart 8 will do a better job in my opinion.

Mario Kart 8, Smash, and probably Donkey Kong will be the major system sellers for next year. 3DS Smash might cut into the Wii U version's sales, but I think it'll do just fine.

I have heard the two versions won't be identical in terms of content, like each will have characters and stages exclusive to it.

Don't forget Hyrule Warriors will no doubt pick up some slack in Japan, and it will have moderate success here. People want a change of pace for Zelda, and this is the biggest kick-in-the-pants to the formula that I can see, even if it is a spinoff.

Smash will bring people in, no doubt. The staying power will be what comes after Smash, like MK8, Hyrule Warriors, Donkey Kong, etc.

The question isn't whether Smash Bros will make or break the Wii U; it's how much will Smash Bros save the Wii U. The fact that it's also available on the 3DS (which loads of people have now thanks to Pokemon X & Y and Animal Crossing) means that people don't have to buy a Wii U in order to play the newest installment that usually sold people on the consoles themselves. The way I see it, the only people who will buy a Wii U for Smash Bros are the 'hardcore' fans, and even then we'll probably keep hearing them whine about how much better Melee was.
