Ubisoft Believes in Wii U for Core and Casual Customers

But which will prevail?
Ubisoft is always a big supporter of new hardware — it had six titles out for the 3DS launch, for example — and the publishing giant will be there on Wii U day one. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has spoken to Gamasutra about the upcoming console's potential to appeal to the casual and core customers that could help it eclipse the Wii's mammoth sales:
We are big believers in the Wii U, on two subjects. One is for high-end games, where we'll be able to do a game for the Wii U, but also for other [high-definition] machines, but also with specific use of [Wii U's] tablet. Two, is we like the Wii U for all the [potential of] casual games.
Having seen such success with casual games on Wii, it's clear Ubisoft will continue to produce dancing and fitness games for Wii U, but will the publisher's more core-oriented games such as Killer Freaks From Outer Space help to establish that second audience for the console?
