Ubisoft 'will continue' collaborating with Nintendo


'I hope we will be able to surprise you'

Ubisoft and Nintendo have a pretty good thing going at the moment. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle turned out so much better than I ever would've expected. This year's Starlink: Battle for Atlas, which we recently learned will feature Fox McCloud on Nintendo Switch, seems like the real deal.

Responding to a fan question at E3, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that the two companies intend to continue this partnership. That's your cue to start thinking about your dream mash-ups.

"[The relationship] is very strong because we have done many things together in the past," he said. "The Nintendo brands and their capacity to create fantastic games is really something that our creators in Ubisoft love, and when they can collaborate with Nintendo, they are extremely happy to do so. So yes it will continue, and I hope we will be able to surprise you with new things in the future."

With the way things have gone so far, I feel like Nintendo is only growing more trusting of Ubisoft and how it handles its characters. We could see even more unexpected, out-there collabs down the road.
