'We've always had a close relationship with Nintendo so we had an advantage in getting dev kits early', says Tony Key
Ubisoft intends to be the number one third party developer on Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U, claims the studio’s SVP of marketing.
Speaking to Gamasutra, Tony Key said the French publisher is planning on releasing numerous games for the next-gen console, much like it did with the Wii and 3DS.
"We have big plans for Wii U. Our intention is to be the number one third-party on Wii U, just like we were on Kinect and just like we were on 3DS," said Key.
"We've always had a really close relationship with Nintendo, so I'd venture to say that we did have an advantage in getting dev kits earlier than other people. I'm not saying we got them earlier than everyone, but I do think we got them early.”
Ubisoft is currently developing five titles for the Wii U, including Assassin’s Creed III, Ghost Recon Online and Rabbids.
