Ubisoft “Surprised” At How Easy It Is To Develop For Nintendo Switch


There’s not long left until we can explore the wacky world in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and, in the build up to the Nintendo Switch exclusive’s release, Ubisoft has spoken more about the game’s development.

What’s interesting is that Ubisoft Milan lead narrative designer Andrea Babich has shared that the team were “really surprised” at how easy it was to develop on Nintendo Switch, which will hopefully not only be encouraging news for Nintendo but could help attract other developers.

“Actually, we were really surprised about how easy the development for this system is,” Babich explained to ntower. “I don’t want to sound like a Ubisoft or Nintendo fan, but when we got the dev kit and put the Snowdrop engine onto the Switch, these two perfectly fit together.

“The Snowdrop engine, which is our engine for almost everything and which we used for the last South Park game, is so versatile that we quickly lost our worries about the development.”

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on August 29th.
