Coming from a Game Informer interview with Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft...

On supporting NX at launch

“You can expect we’ll support Nintendo. Nintendo is one of the best partners in the world.”

On lessons learned from the Wii U

“We could see it wasn’t selling as fast as expected, so we reorganized around other platforms. With the Wii U, we were able to relaunch Rayman 2D. It was a good thing for the company and the brand and its fans. If you remember, it was supposed to be Wii U exclusive, but we made it multi-platform when we saw it wasn’t selling fast enough. The Wii U has done quite well. It’s still a Nintendo machine with lots of great franchises, and we’ve sold lots of copies of Just Dance on it.”

Thanks to Dakhil for the heads up!
