Alain Corre, executive director over at Ubisoft, revealed in an interview at Gamescom that the company still has faith in both PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Wii U and they are more than certain that the two console will find their way pretty soon.
“We were very pleasantly surprised by Sony’s last push on the Vita,” Corre told IGN. “Decreasing the price and investing a lot in new IP and trying to use the Vita as a second screen for the PS4, all of that gives a lot of advantages for the future of the Vita. We’re watching that space and making sure that our PS4 games work on Vita, so the global experience on PS4 is even better.”
“There are millions, tens of millions of fans of Nintendo brands. I’m sure you’ve played Mario Kart for hundreds of hours. I did too. There are so many great franchises that are still making people dream. We think these brands will stay with us,” he said. “After that, it’s up to Nintendo to make sure that the machine can reach as many consumers as possible. We all think that they’ll be able to sell more machines in the future. They have some of the best IP in the world, and some of the best memories for their players. If you’ve played Smash Bros. in the past, you want to play the next one. So these brands have a future, for sure. It’s up to them to work on more communication to get the machine into more hands.”
This means that the company will continue supporting both consoles from now one. Their latest game, Rayman legends, will be releasing on PlayStation Vita and Wii U on 30 August in Europe and 3 September in America.
