Nintendo’s Wii U Has Third Party Support Incoming From Ubisoft And Activision

Activision-Ubisoft-WiiU

Today, Activision announced it has six titles coming to the Wii U, including Call of Duty: Ghosts. Ubisoft has a slew of titles heading to Nintendo‘s console as well. The Wii U has had a tough time attracting third party support since it launched in late November, 2012.  Many studios have went on record saying they have no intention of releasing their titles on the Wii U, but if Nintendo is able to draw the support of Activision and Ubisoft, there’s still hope. Here’s a list of titles coming to the Wii U from the two giant sized publishers:

Activision

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts (November 5)
  • Skylanders SWAP Force (October 13 North America, October 16 Australia, October 18 Europe)
  • Angry Birds Trilogy (August 13)
  • Angry Birds Star Wars (October 29)
  • Spongebob SquarePants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge (date TBA)
  • Wipeout Create & Crash (date TBA)

Ubisoft

That’s ten notable third party releases for the Wii U within the next five months. The Wii U may be able to bounce back with this type of third party support, and of course, their host of first party titles like Pikmin 3 and New Super Luigi U. The Wii U has been on life support for sometime now, but by the looks of things, there may be a dose of adrenaline on the way.

Here’s hoping that Nintendo sees a resurgence leading up to, and during this holiday season. With the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hitting in the same time period, it’ll be more necessary than ever for a stand out Wii U release schedule. Activision and Ubisoft’s strong contributions may be paramount to the survival of the platform. It’s good to know that Nintendo isn’t throwing in the towel.
