Ubisoft has multiple games in development for Nintendo’s NX

Ubisoft is often referred to as a “megapublisher” by its fans because they typically release dozens of games a year across every conceivable platform. And it’s beginning to look like Nintendo’s NX won’t be an exception.

During this year’s E3 Expo, Ubisoft announced that Just Dance 2017 would be released for the NX next year. Yesterday, Alain Corre, the Executive Director of Ubisoft’s EMEA Division, revealed to GamesIndustry.biz that the company actually has multiple NX titles in development:

“We announced that we’re developing Just Dance for NX and we have other surprises that we will announce later, but we also believe Nintendo has the power to reinvent the way families are playing,” Corre tells me. “Nintendo is a fantastic powerhouse of brands that are really cherished by a lot of fans and families… I am still impressed by the reoccurrence of success and appetite even today for the Nintendo franchises on the current system.”

Ubisoft currently plans to release two games for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One next year… medieval free-for-all For Honor, and the cartel-busting Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. But as of today, it’s unknown if either of these games is also in development for the NX, which will launch in March 2017.

And then there’s always the possibility that Ubisoft has something completely unique in store for the NX.

Aside from a handful of game announcements, Nintendo’s NX is still shrouded in mystery (though that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill). Besides Just Dance 2017, Nintendo will release The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for their new console in 2017, while Sega plans to publish Project Sonic sometime next Fall.

Just Dance 2017 is dancing its way to every platform this October (and the NX next year)

The Just Dance franchise just can’t stop, and Ubisoft announced the next entry in the series will be available this October. Just Dance 2017 will be released for the… deep breath… PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. But wait, there’s more. Just Dance 2017 will be available for the PC as well, a first for the franchise, and it’ll also be released for Nintendo’s NX console next year.

Just Dance 2017 will feature the brand new Just Dance Machine mode on the PC, PS4, Wii U, and Xbox One, which Ubisoft said is a “fun and frantic dance experience that will have players testing their skills through a variety of dance types including flamenco, ballet, and the cancan.” Returning modes include Sweat + Playlists, Just Dance Quest, Just Dance TV, and World Dance Floor.

But what will players bust a move to this year? The first 11 confirmed songs include:

  • Justin Bieber – “Sorry”
  • Psy (featuring CL of 2NE1) – “Daddy”
  • Sia (featuring Sean Paul) – “Cheap Thrills”
  • Major Lazer (featuring MØ & DJ Snake) – “Lean On”
  • Fifth Harmony (featuring Kid Ink) – “Worth It”
  • Queen – “Don’t Stop Me Now”
  • Hatsune Miku – “PoPiPo”
  • Dyro & Dannic – “Radical”
  • Maluma – “El Tiki”
  • Equinox Stars – “September”
  • Ultraclub 90 – “What Is Love”

Ubisoft will also release a Gold Edition of Just Dance 2017, which features a three-month subscription to the Just Dance Unlimited streaming service. And the PC, PS4, Wii U, and Xbox One versions of the game will once again be compatible with the Controller App for smartphones.

Gameplay videos for all 11 confirmed tracks can be found after the break. (more…)
