Ubisoft Says We’re Going To Be Number One On Wii U

Ubisoft has told GamaSutra that the company plans to be the number one third party developer on Wii U when the system launches later this year. Ubisoft already has five titles planned for Wii U including Assassins Creed 3, Ghost Recon Online and a brand new Rabbids title.

“We have big plans for Wii U. Our intention is to be the number one third party on Wii U, just like we were on Kinect and 3DS.”

“We’ve always had a really close relationship with Nintendo so I’d ventur eto say that we did have an advantage in getting dev kits earlier than other people. I’m not saying we got them earlier than everyone, but I do think we got them early.”

- SVP of sales and marketing Tony Key.

    1. For Wii U, it may be similar. For instance, Assassins Creed III has been confirmed for Wii U, although Resident Evil 6 hasn’t. Ubisoft seems to be making their partnership with Nintendo well known in advance. I’m guessing Capcom got dev-kits quite early as well.

  1. lol they wanna be the best third party developer for the wii u and they are releasing another stupid rabbids game?! Rayman origins 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Did you play Raving Rabbids games? they are really really funny and its very good game if you play with your friend or girlfriend. I really really like Rabbids but the best one its Raving Rabbids 2 World Tour =P

      And Rayman Origins = Amazing game.

      I want both jajaja =P

      1. The Joker is just jealous because one franchise has an exclusive feature (Assassin’s Creed III) and one is an exclusive title (Killer Freaks from Outer Space).

  2. Let’s hope both Assassin’s Creed III and Ghost Recon: Online make Ubisoft the #1 third party publisher and developer for Nintendo’s new console this Holiday season.

      1. Killer Freaks from outer space is Ubisoft.

        You could be getting mixed up with Aliens which is published by Sega.

  3. I can’t really agree that they’re #1 on the 3DS, but it seems hard to disagree on the Wii U front. If we add Killer Freaks, then that would be 4 titles prepared for it, so I guess the last one would be a new Let’s Dance game or something. In fact, I’m excited for Assassin’s Creed 3 and Killer Freaks, but I’m also curious about Ghost Recon Online.

    Aliens: Colonical Marines looks good, but I wish Gearbox would talk to 2K and release Borderlands 2 on the Wii U. A game with a menu system as that would be crazy with the new controller.

  4. Ubisoft always supports Nintendo. We have to wait and see the quality of the games they’re releasing on Wii U. A lot of cool looking stuff from Ubisoft is on the way.

    Leave luck to heaven.

  5. 3ds slick, you can kiss my ass, because all games from Nintendo are FROM Japan! YOU BLEW IT, YOU DUMBASS! YOU JUST STARTED 2012! IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG! NOW NINTENDO HQ AND SEGA HQ ARE IN HORROE OF WHAT YOU JUST SAID! YOU FUCKING PRICK! FUCK YOU! YOU HAVE DESTROYED US ALL! YOU HAVE KILLED ALL GAMERS WHO LOVE JAPAN’S WORK! YOU MOTHERFUCKER! YOU WILL PAY FOR YOUR ACTIONS! NOW, GO TO HELL, BITCH!

    (sarcasm self-test complete)
    I actually meant what I said….but i just had to say it in a stupid fashion! I JUST HAD TO.
