For the second time in as many days, Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre has spoken positively about Wii U.
Corre shared a few comments about the console as well as Nintendo in general while speaking with IGN. He was quick to point out the popularity of Nintendo’s IPs, which are among the world’s best. Regarding Wii U, Corre believes “that they’ll be able to sell more machines in the future”. He also noted: “It’s up to them to work on more communication to get the machine into more hands.”
Corre’s comments in full:
“There are millions, tens of millions of fans of Nintendo brands. I’m sure you’ve played Mario Kart for hundreds of hours. I did too. There are so many great franchises that are still making people dream. We think these brands will stay with us. After that, it’s up to Nintendo to make sure that the machine can reach as many consumers as possible. We all think that they’ll be able to sell more machines in the future. They have some of the best IP in the world, and some of the best memories for their players. If you’ve played Smash Bros. in the past, you want to play the next one. So these brands have a future, for sure. It’s up to them to work on more communication to get the machine into more hands.”
