Ubisoft think Rayman will be a Wii U System Seller
Ubisoft recently revealed that Rayman Legends – a game that was touted as a release-window must-buy – was being delayed on Wii U so that it could go multi-plat. Fans of the franchise, and people who just wanted an awesome platformer on Wii U, didn’t take the news especially well, and who can blame them? Copies of the Wii U version of the game are probably sitting in warehouses, gathering dust. The feedback and anger haven’t deterred Ubisoft, however, who believe Rayman will remain a Wii U system seller.
Buried deep within a very interesting GamesIndustry.biz interview, Xavier Poix explained that Wii U’s sales weren’t deterring Ubisoft from continuing development for the system, and that Rayman will be a major feature.
“Selling a new way of playing can take some time, and we know the power of the brands from Nintendo and we know from the fans that the majority of what will be the system sellers are not yet available. And on our side, Rayman will be one of them for sure. We really expect Rayman to be a huge system seller on the console.”
God forbid you take a risk and release it before a PS3/360 version, though.
