Ubisoft to stand by Wii U
The Wii U has faced heavy fire from critics and publishers alike. It was recently revealed that EA no longer had Wii U games in development, despite heavy endorsement of the console at E3 2011, and is doing anything it can to put distance between the seemingly-doomed console and themselves.
However, a beacon of light has shined on the Wii U in the form of Ubisoft.
The game behemoth stated that they understand that “it takes some time to grow an established base” and has a nice stable of games coming for the Wii U in the near future, while also pledging support for the future of the console.
Given Nintendo’s bad history in the third-party arena, we can only hope that they can use the publisher’s faith to their advantage. Sure, we’re looking forward to the new Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. titles that we saw coming from a mile away. Who didn’t love some of the new features of Brawl? However, Nintendo can only thrive on more-of-the-same for so long. Let’s hope they don’t squander the important message Ubisoft is trying to send.
Here are some of the games Ubisoft has in store for Wii U owners: Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, and Splinter Cell Blacklist.
