While many third party game developers and publishers have withdrawn its support for Nintendo’s latest console Wii U, Ubisoft maintained its support for the console. Now it seems that Ubisoft also aims to support the Nintendo’s upcoming console Nintendo NX.
Recently, Ubisoft hosted an Ubisoft Event where the company talked about Nintendo NX has expressed its admiration for the upcoming console. During the event, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that Nintendo has adapted to deliver what consumers actually want from their console.
I think, once again, the interface is very attractive. It’s a machine that will be easy to use for all gamers. They have built in something that will give us chance to really have a different experience from what exists today. That’s what I like – that they come with something new that is adapted to what we actually want now.
During another presentation at Ubisoft event, he said that Nintendo NX is a “fantastic machine” and said “I think it’s a really new approach, it’s really Nintendo, coming with something new again. We love it”.
Nintendo’s last console was Wii U which was a failure in terms of sales when asked that Nintendo NX is a step back, Guillemot said that nothing can be said until the console is revealed, and also added that “Nintendo has learned from the Wii U”.
It’s difficult to answer that [before NX is revealed]. What we see is that Nintendo has learned from the Wii U. All publishers learn from what they do, and then come with something new and more attractive, which I think is the case here.
There have been a lot of Pokemon games released for Nintendo’s consoles and the upcoming Pokemon Sun And Moon will release for Nintendo 2DS and 3DS. While there are rumors that Nintendo NX will be a hybrid of a console and handheld, The Pokemon Company has said that future Pokemon games will release for NX.
While there is no official release date announced for Nintendo NX, but the console is expected to launch in March 2017.
