Nintendo has lined up a number of third-party publishers to create games for the upcoming Wii U. Ubisoft seems particularly enthusiastic about the new console. Senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key says that his company plans to be the top third-party publisher for the Wii U.
"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," Key told Gamasutra.
Key adds that their work with the Wii and 3DS has given them an advantage in the Wii U market. He believes that they were one of the first companies to receive dev kits from Nintendo.
"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 has announced four games for the Wii U thus far: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online, Raving Rabbids, Killer Freaks from Outer Space and Assassin's Creed 3. It's rumored that they're creating a Wii U version of the fitness game Your Shape as well.
The Wii U is expected to arrive this holiday season.
