“I’m going to be a little bit careful about what I can share…Well, with On Tour we’ve really intended it to go as a trilogy. I don’t know if we’ve officially said that, but yes, it’s a trilogy, and this is the last game in that On Tour set. Creatively we really wanted to finish off the trilogy as intended, on the original DS, before moving onto DSi. As you know we’ve been working as a studio on DSi already with our DSiWare Mixed Messages, which is the first third party piece of software on DSiWare. So in that time we’ve had a chance to really get familiar with the DSi platform and it is freaking awesome. It definitely has all the core features of the DS, but it also has a lot of new things in there too.

There’s a lot of possibilities, and we want to make sure we’re taking the time and doing it right. So the guys here are working on that, and we can’t really share what we have planned yet. There are a lot of ideas being pushed around, and that’s really the great thing about a Nintendo platform. The company puts out a new platform with all these features that feel like they’re tacked on – Touch screen? Two screens? What a gimmick! – and everyone’s kind of skeptical about it at first, and then all fo a sudden as designers and programmers are spending time with it they go “oh my God we could do this and this…” and all these ideas start popping up with it. So we were realy stoked when going deeper and deeper with the system.

Now, I think it’d be really tough to get every feature under the sun out there with DSi on the first try, but that’s what’s so great about the platform. The DS came out in 2004, we had a launch title with Spiderman 2, and now five years later we’re still doing great things on the DS. So I think it’s going to be a long while before the system is fully realized.” – President, developer of Vicarious Visions Karthik Bala

When Ubisoft put out a recent press release, rumors were swirling that the company might bring Assassin’s Creed II to the Wii. Alberto Ziello, an Italian PR representative, has now addressed the speculation (translated below).

“Nintendo’s console [Wii] is not included – The game will be available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, like the first title.”

I suppose you can still keep an open mind since we haven’t heard anything from an English representative. However, Mr. Ziello’s comment seems to have quelled the rumors for now.

– 14 percent sales increase for fiscal 2008
– “a continued strong showing” for Rayman Raving Rabbids: TV Party and Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip
– Ubisoft’s fourth quarter sales: $292.52 million
– full year result: $1.5 billion
– Petz and Imagine series both sold over a million
– Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party saw sales 50% higher than the previous installment
– 1,300 employees added over the last year
– “Our goal is to internalize more and more of the development of our projects to better control development processes and quality, so we will have less third party and more internal projects.” – Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot
– “You can expect more Shaun White in the future.” – Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot
– Ubisoft has a ’soon to be announced’ title that will ship this holiday season
– Ubisoft also has an unnamed sports title in the works
“We have adapted our strategy toward bigger games with higher quality… more investment, but in the end it will reduce risk and increase each game’s potential.” – Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot
– “We need to get ready for the future generation of consoles. In the next few years, there will be new home and handheld consoles, and if you don’t invest… you will not be able to cope with both [the existing and new generation consoles].” – Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot
