Ubisoft Confident Its Titles Will Attract Gamers To Wii U

"Nintendo will take steps to ensure that the Wii U is successful"
Publishing behemoth EA made the announcement this week that it currently has no games in the works for Wii U.
This was almost expected by many, what with the news that many of the company's upcoming sports games - including FIFA 14, Madden 14 and Tiger Woods 14 - would not be making it to Nintendo's latest home console.
Ubisoft on the other hand has been a staunch supporter of Wii U and has been providing plenty of titles for the system as it aims to work with Nintendo to grow the console's user base.
Despite slow sales Ubisoft has continued with this commitment and in a statement given to Games Industry International has once more reaffirmed its faith in the console:
As with any new console, it takes some time to grow an established base. Ubisoft has a varied and high-quality line-up for Wii U, with more big titles on the way including Rayman Legends, Watch_Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. We're confident that this will help in continuing to attract gamers to the Wii U system and that Nintendo will take steps to ensure that the Wii U is successful in the market.
Ubisoft appears to be behind Nintendo but still wants it to "take steps" in order to turn things around.
