Ubisoft has high expectations for Switch, “helps expand the possibilities of fun”
This week’s issue of Famitsu contains a two-page interview with two of Ubisoft’s executives. EMEA boss Alain Corre was included in the conversation.
During the chat, Famitsu asked a question about Switch. Regarding the upcoming platform and Ubisoft’s support, Corre responded with the following:
“We have big expectations for the innovative Nintendo Switch. Our Just Dance franchise, for example, is one that people enjoy with families. With the Nintendo Switch in hand, children, their parents, or even their grandparents, would be able to dance out in the backyard on holidays. Doesn’t that sound exciting (laughs)? The hardware really helps expand the possibilities of fun, people of all ages will be able to play games anywhere. We hope to have a wide variety of software available, but we’re unable to go into details just yet. Sorry (laughs).”
Ubisoft has been talking a bunch about Switch, even before Nintendo formally revealed the system last month. When it was still known as NX, Corre himself said that it “will recapture a lot of the lapsed Wii players.”
