Ubisoft’s Michael Ancel has shared his personal views of Nintendo in the Official Nintendo Magazine’s latest issue. The Rayman Legends creator believes Nintendo’s ability to take great risks within the industry is both the company’s greatest strength and weakness. But Ancel’s a great believer in the Big N, saying it’s come up with some of the biggest surprises over the years.
“Nintendo’s greatest strength, and its greatest weakness, is innovation. It’s a company that takes a lot of risks. Few people understand that innovation involves risk-taking, because you don’t control everything on the market.
“Today, the biggest surprises seem to come from Nintendo. People may like those surprises or not, but that’s a fact. Miiverse was a surprise, the GamePad was a surprise. What will come next? I can’t wait!”
