Ubisoft confident Nintendo NX can recapture lost Wii audience -

Ubisoft is confident that the Nintendo NX will bring back "a lot" of Wii players that skipped Wii U.

Speaking to MCV, Ubisoft EMEA boss Alain Corre said that the publisher has "always appreciated the relationship with Nintendo, the co-creation and the fact that they are really concentrating on quality - they have fantastic brands.

"And they are addressing the family market in a very different way, their own way, which we appreciate. We have done a lot of products and successes with Nintendo in the past, and we believe that the NX will recapture a lot [of] the lapsed Wii players. So we will see when they release it, but we are confident."

Nintendo has yet to reveal the NX, which is due to go on sale in March 2017, although it is rumoured to include both home console and handheld components. Ubisoft announced its first game for the console - Just Dance 2017 - earlier this week.

Back in May, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima was reported to have said that the NX "is neither the successor to the Wii U nor to the 3DS". "It's a new way of playing games, which I think will have a larger impact than the Wii U, but I don't feel it's a pure replacement for the Wii U."

More details on the Nintendo NX are expected to be revealed later this year.
