Ubisoft “don’t have any disappointments” with Wii U install base


Ubisoft have shared that they have no concerns regarding the Wii U, recognising that Nintendo have yet to leverage the power of their brands on the new console.

“We don’t have any disappointments compared to the installed base,” Ubisoft France Studios head Xavier Poix stated to Games Industry International. “We are just hoping that Nintendo’s results for Wii U will be a bit bigger, like Iwata-san said.

“Selling a new way of playing can take some time, and we know the power of the brands from Nintendo and we know from the fans that the majority of what will be the system sellers are not yet available. And on our side, Rayman will be one of them for sure. We really expect Rayman to be a huge system seller on the console.”

The third-party publisher has remained a strong supporter of the console, promising a “pipeline of games” and that it will eventually “find its public.”
