Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel shared a few words about Nintendo while speaking with ONM this month.
According to the Rayman creator, innovation is the company’s greatest strength as well as its greatest weakness. This goes hand in hand with risk-taking, he believes.
Ancel also said that “the biggest surprises seem to come from Nintendo.” Miiverse and the GamePad were both pointed to as examples.
Ancel’s comments in full:
Nintendo’s greatest strength, and its greatest weakness, is innovation. It’s a company that takes a lot of risks. Few people understand that innovation involves risk-taking, because you don’t control everything on the market.
Today, the biggest surprises seem to come from Nintendo. People may like those surprises or not, but that’s a fact. Miiverse was a surprise, the GamePad was a surprise. What will come next? I can’t wait!
