Ubisoft: 3DS “brilliant” for third party

Thursday, 17th March 2011 00:25 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ubisoft brand manager Jan Sanghera has revealed the publisher is backing the 3DS strongly.

“It’s difficult to imagine a scenario where the 3DS isn’t bigger than the original,” Sanghera told MCV.

The publisher seems set to capitalise on its preferential third-party status with Nintendo.

“We’ve historically been a leader in games developed for new Nintendo platforms, and with eight games available during launch and more to come, we hope to maintain this position,” the executive said.

“Nintendo is offering more than just something that appeals to the core game. … We’d expect 3DS to compete strongly in the broader handheld category, offering a wide range of good reasons for consumers to purchase it. All of which is brilliant news for third party publishers,” she concluded.

    3DS casual games will not sell because Apples App store has soo much more to offer for £1 or less lol.

    Any proper gaming games on 3DS will be over shadowed when NGP comes out.

    Well to tell the truth, i did like the rayman vs rabbids game, all the rabbids games, red steel 2 and prince of persia the forgotten sands, i like it better than the ps3 and 360 counterparts,so bring it on ubisoft, especially the sequel for the cell shaded prince of persia game.

    And is obvious that the 3DS will have the same success as the DS, even if i may dare say, it will surppass it, it has strong brand recognition and a tech that has a high attach rate on consumers( 3D without glasses and an expensive tv set).
