We’ve previously reported that Ubisoft might be working on Rabbids Party Land for the Wii U, and now there’s a bit of validation to the rumor. According to an Ubisoft developer’s LinkedIn profile, he has worked on a “party game project” for the Wii U. However, his CV has since been updated and the mention of the game and Wii U has been removed. Someone managed to snag the above screenshot of the developer’s profile before it was changed. Due to Nintendo’s NDA agreements, developers can’t disclose the details of their projects or the Wii U console. This NDA is expected to be lifted after E3, where Nintendo will reveal many of the final Wii U features.
The first time we saw Rabbids Party Land mentioned was during the Blockbuster Wii U games leak, where it was one of the 25 titles rumored to launch for the console this year. Ubisoft is the biggest third party supporter of the Wii U so far — the company has announced that they will bring 7 games to the Wii U launch this year, 2 of which are core titles and 5 of which are casual. Rabbids Party Land definitely sounds like one of the casual titles. The other casual titles include Just Dance 4, Rayman Legends, Your Shape 2013, and one more unannounced project as well.
Thanks for the tip, Roark!
