We know that Ubisoft have always been strong Nintendo supporters, while their output may have wained in recent years, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot still claims that the Kyoto based company is one of the best partners in the world. We know that Ubisoft currently has Just Dance 2017 in development for the Nintendo NX and was one of the first games announced for the platform during E3 in June.
“You can expect we’ll support Nintendo. Nintendo is one of the best partners in the world.”
“We could see it wasn’t selling as fast as expected, so we reorganized around other platforms. With the Wii U, we were able to relaunch Rayman 2D. It was a good thing for the company and the brand and its fans. If you remember, it was supposed to be Wii U exclusive, but we made it multi-platform when we saw it wasn’t selling fast enough. The Wii U has done quite well. It’s still a Nintendo machine with lots of great franchises, and we’ve sold lots of copies of Just Dance on it.”
