The Wii U’s going through troublesome times, and many publishers and developers look to have turned their backs on it. However, there’s one company that remains hopeful that Nintendo can turn it around. In an interview with Engadget, Ubisoft’s Alain Corre revealed that the publisher still has high hopes for the dual-screened home console, calling its GamePad “second to none,” but also criticized Nintendo for not investing enough efforts into the platform.

We consider the Wii U a great machine [and] the GamePad is second to none… We just need Nintendo to put more energy [in]. A lot of consumers will want this machine if the energy is put in. – Alain Corre

Corre believed that the success of upcoming titles such as Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8 could push Ubisoft into reallocating resources towards the Wii U, and he also hinted at some DLC for could’ve-been-but-then-wasn’t Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends when asked about it.

That’s something we are thinking of for Rayman Legends. There may be some extra things we can do for this game.

The executive director went on to share some thoughts about mobile gaming, thinking of it as a positive addition to the games industry because it will eventually push them into home consoles and PC.

What we like in mobile gaming is that it’s bringing a lot of new people to games — Which for us is very good because it’s a teaching thing and… at one point, some of them will feel a bit limited with the scope of mobile games and they’ll want to experience something different in gaming.

It was also explained that the Vita’s Remote Play feature, which was demoed for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag at this year’s Gamescom, would only be included for Ubisoft titles on a case-by-case basis, contrary to Sony’s mentioning that “almost all” titles will be available for remote play.

A lot of things to digest here, but what do you think? Should Ubisoft continue supporting the Wii U, and is it wise of them to wait and see what first- and second-party titles can accomplish for the underperforming console?
