The Wii U just keeps getting more and more praise from Ubisoft. The latest comes from Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel, who has been with the company for many years and is the creator of Beyond Good & Evil and the upcoming Rayman Legends. He shared his thoughts on the Wii U in a recent interview, and he’s got a lot of praise for the new console. However, Ancel also had some words of caution for Nintendo.
He said that the Wii U has “enormous amounts of memory”, which is very suitable for 2D games like Rayman Legends. This is because Rayman Legends apparently uses a lot of memory for textures, drawings etc. Which makes sense, because the game looks absolutely gorgeous (just take a look at the recent screenshots). Ancel also believes the Wii U is meant for core gamers, since it brings them new features with the GamePad while still offering great visuals.
Ancel also had some reservations for the Wii U. He said that Nintendo has a tough job explaining the Wii U, because of its unique nature and new technology. And while the console is powerful, he doesn’t believe it’s a “traditional” next gen console. He also confirmed that Rayman Legends will run at 60 frames per second at 1080p, just like the trailers and screenshots suggested.
