When it seemed like EA dealt the final third-party blow last week by declaring they didn’t have anything in the works anymore for Wii U things looked grim. However, the good old Nintendo Wii U still has a third-party friend in Ubisoft. A spokesperson from Ubisoft said that with any system things take time time to develop, “an established base” and that Ubisoft believes that if Nintendo makes the right moves the Wii U can prosper.
The spokesperson went on to say that, “Ubisoft has a varied and high-quality line-up for the Wii U, with more big titles on the way including Rayman Legends, Watch_Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Splinter Cell Blacklist.” Ubisoft is hoping that with the release of these highly anticipated titles more players will be drawn to the Wii U and then will be able to see its not some Wii add-on, an additional Wii controller, or a huge one screen DS.
For the time being the Wii U is still suffering low sales numbers, a weak third party library, and an uphill battle against what many consider the real next-gen systems–the next Xbox and the PS4.
