Ubisoft made big bets on the Wii and Wii U — it was the biggest third party publisher on both platforms during the launch of both consoles. And the French publisher has big hopes for the NX as well.
Speaking at E3, Ubisoft EMEA head Alain Corre said that they expect the Nintendo NX console to recapture some of the Wii fans that passed on the Wii U.
“We have done a lot of products and successes with Nintendo in the past, and we believe that the NX will recapture a lot of the lapsed Wii players.” he told MCV, adding “So we will see when they release it, but we are confident.”
Ubisoft is the only major third party publisher to announce a game for the NX: Just Dance 2017. No exactly a system seller or killer app, but that’s what Zelda: Breath of the Wild is for.
The Nintendo NX will launch in the Spring of 2017.
