With Nintendo’s Wii successor — commonly referred to as “Project Café” — on the horizon for a 2012 release, developers are thinking about how to approach the platform, Ubisoft included.

 

According to Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft will be able to use their work on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for the Wii successor. “First, the platform Nintendo is coming with is really a fantastic platform. We think it will be extremely successful,” Guillemot said to an investor, during a recent earnings call.

 

“And 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,” Guillemot continued, “so we will not have to redo completely the games that we create. We’ll be able to use all the capacity the console is giving but also use all the work that we do for the other platforms.”

 

Nintendo plan to release more information on the Wii successor at their E3 press conference in June, along with playable titles for the system.
