Ubisoft to Reveal Wii U Games on 4th June

Strap yourself in

Ubisoft's confirmed it'll show off its Wii U games at its E3 press event on 4th June, ahead of Nintendo's conference on 5th June.

Let's play the name game

Ubisoft's throwing its considerable weight behind Wii U with no fewer than seven games in development, CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed.

Ubisoft Announces Avengers Game for Wii U

Battle for Earth

The film's already out — good, isn't it? — but there's no video game tie-in for The Avengers. Not yet anyway, as Ubisoft's just announced Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth for Wii U. The motion-controlled superhero game will come to the console later this year with 20 different Marvel characters in tow, so expect to see all the...

Ratings Board Leaks Ubisoft's Rabbids Rumble

They're bwaaah-ck

Ubisoft is preparing another outing for the Rabbids, as we've unearthed a rating for Rabbids Rumble. The Australian Classification Board slapped a G rating on the game, citing "very mild crude humour", which doesn't really give much away. The rating doesn't specify which formats the game is heading to, but as there have...

Rayman Legends is Coming to Wii U, Supports NFC

Update: Ubisoft responds

Update: Ubisoft has issued a statement about Rayman Legends, acknowledging its development but stressing it's for internal use only: An internal video showing images of Rayman Origins’ sequel has leaked over the Internet.

News: Ubisoft Wants to Be Top Dog on Wii U

Ubisoft Wants to Be Top Dog on Wii U

Sound familiar?

Ubisoft will stick to its tactic of big launch support for new consoles when Wii U launches later this year. Last year Ubi launched six games alongside 3DS and, back in 2006, released half a dozen games on the same day as Wii. That plan helped it become the biggest third-party publisher on both formats — though Ubi's Wii success...

Ubisoft Ready for Digital Content Blitz on Wii U

"We'll absolutely take advantage"

Ubisoft's always a big day-one supporter of any console — it launched six games with 3DS a year ago — and it's one of the few publishers to have announced multiple Wii U projects in the forms of Assassin's Creed III, Killer Freaks from Outer Space and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online. It's not just retail games...

Ubisoft to Bring Your Shape to Wii U

The shock

Ubisoft's Your Shape series rose to prominence on Kinect, but it stopped off on Wii first before leaping onto Microsoft's swanky sensor. Now it looks like the fitness series is ready to come back to Nintendo, with a Wii U version supposedly in the works. According to a post from The Royalty Network (via Go Nintendo), Ubisoft has requested...

Rayman Origins 3DS Pushed Back in Europe

Summer date

Ubisoft's pushed the 3DS version of Rayman Origins back to June for Europe. The platformer was originally supposed to be released today but instead Ubi's now put an 8th June release date on the platformer. No reason for the delay has been given.

News: Rayman Origins 3DS Has No Multiplayer

Rayman Origins 3DS Has No Multiplayer

Rayman Origins on 3DS has no multiplayer modes, Ubisoft has confirmed to us. A fact sheet for the 3DS version of the game emerged the other day and didn't make any mention of multiplayer, and now we know why -- there's no local or online co-op play in Rayman's 3DS outing, a shame as four-player was one of the best things about Rayman Origins on...

The trend is set to continue, with owners of the Wii game now having access to two additional DLC packs. The details from the press release are below...

Australian Board Rates Ubisoft's First Ever Virtual Console Titles

Bringing out the big guns

It's hard to believe, but Ubisoft hasn't released a single game on either the Wii or 3DS Virtual Console, surprising considering the publisher's enormous 25-year back catalogue. That could all be about to change though, as the Australian Classifications Board has rated three titles for the services. Ratings for Prince of...
