Ubisoft and the Wii U might have started out on a sort of rocky relationship, but have since patched things up. Now, Ubi seems to be content that the Wii U will be successful, yet admits that despite the great games it is up to Nintendo to sell the units.
“There are millions, tens of millions of fans of Nintendo brands. I’m sure you’ve played Mario Kart for hundreds of hours. I did too. There are so many great franchises that are still making people dream. We think these brands will stay with us,” he said. “After that, it’s up to Nintendo to make sure that the machine can reach as many consumers as possible. We all think that they’ll be able to sell more machines in the future. They have some of the best IP in the world, and some of the best memories for their players. If you’ve played Smash Bros. in the past, you want to play the next one. So these brands have a future, for sure. It’s up to them to work on more communication to get the machine into more hands.”
Do you agree with Ubisoft?
