Ubisoft Still Confident in Nintendo Wii U Success

Ubisoft Still Confident in Nintendo Wii U Success on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

With EA reluctant to develop Wii U titles, Ubisoft have expressed their confidence in Nintendo's future.

One of the bigger power houses in video game development, Ubisoft, has been a strong contender for third party crown on Nintendo systems in recent years. After a successful stint on Wii with Just Dance, the publisher has a comfortable lead on Wii U.

Speaking to GamesIndustry, a company rep confirmed that Ubisoft are "confident that this will help in continuing to attract gamers to the Wii U system and that Nintendo will take steps to ensure that the Wii U is successful in the market."

A successful platform can't simply rely on efforts from Nintendo alone, and so Ubisoft are bringing key franchises to the system this year including Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag and Splinter Cell Blacklist.

What do you think of Ubisoft's ongoing support for Nintendo Wii U?

WEll, at least somebody still believes in nintendo. Ill be buyin all those!

I'm glad this company has remained supportive to Nintendo since the very beginning. HOPEFULLY EA will see their embarrasing error & make new games & even port older Gems like Dead Space to Nintendo's systems.

I'd LOVE an original Dead Space game on 3DS....can you imagine some of the freaky stuff they could do with the 3D on that system!!?

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

Meh...Ubisoft trying to make amends for pissing off a lot of Rayman fans maybe...

Despite the outrageous decision to screw Wii U's exclusivity for Rayman Legends, I gotta give mad props to Ubisoft for historically being one of the very few major 3rd parties that consistently stuck with Nintendo and the fans.

Chance favors the prepared mind.

Ubisoft and Activision remain the few Western Third party developers to continue support the Wii U. I have no idea what Western Developers have against Wii U. But a lot of them have been negative towards the console and showed little support.

While Japanese Third party developers have praised the system and continue to support it. Sega, Capcom, SquareEnix, Tecmo, Namco, Konami, and other Japanese developers are supporting the system.

There's a lot of articles and journalist, making it seem like Wii U is getting no 3rd party support, when infact they are. It's mainly western developers that have been against Wii U. Japanese developers have been in full stride backing the system.
