How Did Ubisoft Get Into Making Girl Games?


image Ubisoft, perhaps more than any other publisher, has been developing games specifically for girls. They have a series of Petz titles from Japanese developer MTO and Imagine everything.

A wise inference, but what if … what if men were buying the pink DSes?
