The difference between the Wii U ports that Nintendo does and what Capcom is doing is that Nintendo made the Switch not backwards compatable. Porting games to the system seems an easier choice as the Wii U games were on demand still.
F-Zero and Star Fox don't sell well because the games are at a nicher audience than Fire Emblem. If Nintendo made it so that both games could be played by anyone, they mostly would have sold more. That and that they were dormant than ever.
11 was rather a safe attempt as the staff are new and so is the producer. 12 or the next game will most likely improve on 11's flaws.
The thing that was odd is that it took so long to reach a million. I remember Capcom once stated that a series needs to sell 2 million inorder for it to have sequels.
