Ubisoft whispers the wonder of Wii 2

Easy to develop for, apparently

Nintendo

French games publisher Ubisoft has expressed its excitement over Nintendo's Wii successor, suggesting the forthcoming console will be a high-powered piece of kit that developers will find easy to port to.

In a call to investors, CEO Yves Guillemot said: "The platform Nintendo is coming with is really a fantastic platform. We think it will be extremely successful…

"What we see is that we will be able to leverage a lot of the work we do for Xbox 360 and PS3 while we create games for the platform. We'll be able to use all the capacity the console is giving but also use all the work we do for the other platforms."

An official revelation is expected during the E3 games expo next month, until then, let the speculation continue. ®
