Ubisoft Believes Super Smash Bros. Will Revive Wii U

Along with Just Dance.

The Wii U has been doing a bit poorer than it should be. It’s an excellent console with some wonderful games, but mass market success has constantly eluded it. Even the power of the incredible Mario Kart 8 could not really help move the console at a desirable pace of sales.

However, eventually, the console is bound to hit a critical mass of desirability and visibility- Ubisoft, one of the system’s most ardent supporters (ones who nevertheless spoke out against supporting it with core games recently) believes that period will be this Holidays, and that the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. (and Ubisoft’s own Just Dance 2014) will be the catalysts.

“Super Smash Bros. has some of the best moments that Nintendo has shared. I think that franchise could be magical for the Wii U,” they said to GamesIndustry.

“To be honest, we always want more consoles,” they continued. “Just Dance 2015 is resonating very well. We think it will please a lot of [existing] Wii U owners and push more families to buy extra Wii Us. But we also believe that Super Smash Bros. will be a trigger to increase the momentum of the Wii U at Holidays. As a gamer, I was playing [Super Smash Bros.] over ten years ago, and it has some of the best moments that Nintendo has shared. I think that franchise could be magical [for the Wii U].

Nintendo has some of the best franchises in the world and it knows how to make great games. It proved that with Mario Kart, and it will prove that again with Super Smash.”

Well, Ubisoft, you and I are agreed one one thing- Nintendo are the best developers in the world, with the best franchises in the world. Whether that is enough to save the Wii U, we’ll see soon enough. We’ll see that very soon.

    I am by no means a big smash Bros guy but I’ll definitely buy the wiiu version. I’m sure the game will sell probe 500k new systems at best. Chances are the big fans already own the wiiu.

    Nintendo should consider the wiiu at close to its max install base at its current price. It needs a major reduction and a goof advertising campaign if they want to boost sales in a meaningful way but even then they might only sell a few more million. They should then focus on getting their major IP out, every piece of IP they have in fact to make owners like me happy then at e3 2016 unveil the next system with specs that blow the Xbox one and ps4 out of the water.

    If they do that and lay off the stupid gimmicks and just make a old fashion console that’s got PC hardware like xb1 and ps4 for easy ports then they will win the gamers back. They would have the most powerful console by a long shot and everyone knows they make amazing games. They will win 3rd parties back because they will prove they are back in the race.

    They will also from that day forward be a half cycle ahead of everyone. So when the next round of consoles launch Nintendo will say just wait a little while and we will have something better for the same price.

  • Almost no-one can disagree that Super Smash Bros is one of best Multiplayer games in the universe and will definitely sell the system to anyone that has played Melee or Brawl.
