Following up on the comments Ubisoft made about Switch during its financial call yesterday, we now have the full statements made by CEO Yves Guillemot and CFO Alain Martinez.
The first remarks are from Guillemot. Speaking about Switch generally during during Ubisoft’s opening, he said:
“… And on top of this, as we have said for quite some time now, we will be delivering some great games for the Switch. The platform’s launch is going incredibly well and we believe the Switch has the potential to reach wide audience. As you know, Ubisoft has been the leading third-party publisher on Nintendo’s console over the past 10 years, and we intend to maintain that position.”
Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez later tackled a question during the Q&A portion of the call. He shared the following about the system:
“… we have new guidance on the Switch. We have one new game not announced and we have also Just Dance that is coming on the machines plus one or two others.”
Ubisoft says it has an unannounced game for Switch
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 15 Comments | 0 Likes
Ubisoft reported its latest financial results today. The news was accompanied by a financial call, which is currently taking place.
During the call, Ubisoft commented directly on Switch. The company is reported as having said that it has “new games on Switch” including one that isn’t announced. Also stated is that there are one or two other titles as well, which may be referring to previously-revealed titles such as Rayman Legends – Definitive Edition and Monopoly.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is one Ubisoft game that has been heavily rumored for Switch. It’s speculated to feature turn-based combat, two-player local co-op, and a “goofy sense of humor” with playable characters including Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, plus four Rabbids dressed up as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Peach. If this project exists – which we do believe is real – E3 would be a good place to announce it.

One Switch game rumor that has persisted for months is a new crossover between Mario and Ubisoft’s Rabbids. Kotaku has a follow up on the project today.
Kotaku writes that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be on Switch this August or September. It’s being developed by Ubisoft with the company’s Snowdrop engine.
Based on Kotaku’s report, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle features turn-based combat, two-player local co-op, and a “goofy sense of humor.” Playable characters include Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, and, four Rabbids dressed up as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Peach.
Kotaku writes about having gotten a look at a particular piece of art that “features Mario and crew wielding guns that shoot laser beams.” We can confirm having seen this as well, and it looks pretty ridiculous – yet amazing.
