Rayman creator Michel Ancel anticipated the WiiU to release a lot sooner than expected. Ubisoft is one of the first third-party developers to receive the WiiU development kit.

Ubisoft: "We Expected WiiU To Release A Lot Sooner" Wiiu_ubisoft

"To be honest, we were on Wii U very early – even for Origins."

"We did not know exactly when Nintendo would release the system, but we started making Origins for Wii U. [At that point], we thought Wii U would come out a lot earlier. We worked very closely with Nintendo [on Wii U] early on, giving them feedback on the various prototypes."

"When we finished Origins, it was time to start thinking about Wii U again, because [the hardware] was nearly complete"

What's the surprise? The Wii U is almost right on cue for the 5.48 year average life cycle of a video game console generation. A console that doesn't least 5 years or more is almost always a console that sold poorly.

The Wii actually sold the second highest number of consoles globally of any console ever released with the PS2 being first "mainly due to the unacceptable hardware failure rate, but with it's impressive library of games most people opted to replace their console."

I won't be surprised if Nintendo decides to release a few first party WiiWare games from the Mario, Zelda, and other franchises to keep the Wii going for awhile after the Wii U launches "Nintendo did say that the Wii would be supported for quite awhile after the Wii U launches."

Remember that WiiWare will be available on both Wii and Wii U just like DSiWare is on the 3DS eshop so this kind of support is possible not to mention any smaller Virtual Console titles such as NES, SNES, and N64 games that are being saved as Wii U Virtual Console releases could also be released on the Wii Virtual Console so don't discount the possibility of Super Mario World 2, Starfox, or Donkey Kong 64 releasing on the service just yet.

I think that rant was long enough lol. I just wanted to say my opinion while backing up some of it with facts. Wink
