Ubisoft Europe boss talks Wii U, believes Smash Bros. can increase momentum
Ubisoft’s European boss Alain Corre commented on the status of Wii U while speaking with GamesIndustry at Gamescom 2014 last week.
Corre’s mainly discussed the new Super Smash Bros., which he believes “will be a trigger to increase the momentum of the Wii U at Christmas.” He added that the series “could be magical” on the console.
Corre’s comments in full are as follows:
“To be honest, we always want more consoles. Just Dance 2015 is resonating very well. We think it will please a lot of [existing] Wii U owners and push more families to buy extra Wii Us. But we also believe that Super Smash Bros. will be a trigger to increase the momentum of the Wii U at Christmas. As a gamer, I was playing [Super Smash Bros.] over ten years ago, and it has some of the best moments that Nintendo has shared. I think that franchise could be magical [for the Wii U]. Nintendo has some of the best franchises in the world and it knows how to make great games. It proved that with Mario Kart, and it will prove that again with Super Smash.”
