Ubisoft want to be number one on Wii U

Good ol’ Ubisoft; the company is never one to shy away from new technology, and its out to prove that with the Wii U.

SVP of sales and marketing Tony Key has revealed the company’s intention to become the “number one” third-party publisher on Nintendo’s new platform.

“We have big plans for Wii U,” Key told Gamasutra (via). “Our intention is to be the number one third-party on Wii U, just like we were on Kinect and just like we were on 3DS.”

Last month the publisher revealed that Assassin’s Creed III would be coming the the console. On top of that a Wii U exclusive FPS named Killer Freaks from Outer Space was revealed from the company was revealed back at the system’s reveal last E3. Ghost Recon Online will also be showing up on the system.

“We’ve always had a really close relationship with Nintendo, so I’d venture to say that we did have an advantage in getting dev kits earlier than other people. I’m not saying we got them earlier than everyone, but I do think we got them early,” Key continued.

“They came to us and asked us to make Red Steel. The thing is, once these dev kits show up in the building, you’ve got these other teams peeking around the curtain going, ‘Hey, what’s that?’ Before you know it, there’s three projects being developed for the Wii in that one room, and then another guy from another studio just happens to be visiting and brings back some ideas…”

Hopefully the publisher resists the temptation to bring us yet another edition of Michael Jackson: The Experience come console launch.
