Ubisoft is never a company to shy away from new system launches. They were one of Nintendo’s biggest supporters at the beginning of the Wii U launch with Zombi U, and later on with titles like Splinter Cell, Rayman Legends, and of course the popular Just Dance. At this past E3, Ubisoft announced that the latest Just Dance game would be coming to Nintendo’s NX (codename) when it launches in March of 2017.
Now, it appears they have other surprises in store for NX users as well. What they will be is anyone’s guess, but the company once again mentions the family aspect of Nintendo’s systems, so I’d be surprised to see something like South Park being a priority for Ubisoft to port. We will hopefully learn more of companies’ plans once Nintendo debuts the new system sometime this fall.
Another new technology that Ubisoft is excited to support is the Nintendo NX. Of course, Nintendo has yet to say anything at all about its new hardware while the rumor mill continues to present plenty of plausible possibilities, but Corre assures me that Ubisoft is gearing up for a slate of titles beyond Just Dance.
“We announced that we’re developing Just Dance for NX and we have other surprises that we will announce later, but we also believe Nintendo has the power to reinvent the way families are playing,” Corre tells me. “Nintendo is a fantastic powerhouse of brands that are really cherished by a lot of fans and families… I am still impressed by the reoccurrence of success and appetite even today for the Nintendo franchises on the current system.”
